The inmates housed at CCCS - WATCh East Program located at 700 Little St in Warm Springs, MT are placed according to their custody level and are incarcerated by a private company contracted by a government agency and are paid a per diem or monthly rate, either for each inmate in the facility or for each bed available. The facility is well-trained and well-staffed. This doesn't come without some controversy as the "price of incarceration" is big business and critics claim there is a monetary benefit to keeping people locked up. The flip side is this facility undergoes rigorous inspections and are some of the be maintained in the US.

For inmates that show a willingness to learn new things, there are educational and vocational training programs here that will prepare them for a successful reentry when released.

Located in Glendive, Montana, WATCh EAST provides a 48-bed felony DUI treatment center that mainly houses women. Applicants are admitted to the six-month program after being screened by a panel composed of law enforcement officials, elected representatives, Department of Corrections staff and townspeople.

WATCh EAST is a partnership between Community, Counseling, and Correctional Services, Inc. (CCCS) and the Montana Department of Corrections (MDOC). The program is based on a Modified Therapeutic Community model of treating addiction and the subsequent social issues.

The WATCh EAST Program opened on February 1, 2005 and is the culmination of efforts by CCCS and the MDOC to provide an alternative, pro-active response to traditional sentencing of adult felony DUI offenders.



The WATCh Program, located in Warm Springs, currently serves male DUI offenders and has a capacity of 146 individuals. However, 40 vacant beds became available in Warm Springs when the WATCh EAST facility became operational. The 40 vacant beds in Warm Springs were used to double the number of beds the state offers through CCCS for a 60-day drug treatment facility, which is the Connections Corrections Program (CCP). It is based in Butte, Montana and differs from the WATCh programs by offering services to men addicted to all types of drugs instead of only alcohol. Expanding CCP is the central aim of relocating female felony DUI offenders to Glendive. The need for that expansion is obvious by the list of more than 100 people waiting to get into CCP.
