CDCR - California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility (SATF-CSP, Corcoran) basic information to help guide you through what you can do for your inmate while they are incarcerated. The facility's direct contact number: 559-992-7100

The inmates housed at SATF-CSP, Corcoran located at 900 Quebec Ave in Corcoran, CA are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

The California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility has a primary focus on treating inmates who have substance abuse issues. The facility is comprised of multiple levels of offenders from level II to level IV. Education plays a major role at this facility, with programs designed to give inmates a basic adult education and GED. Substance abuse treatment includes therapeutic group sessions and NA/AA programs.

Every inmate in the general population is allowed to participate in a variety of work and training programs that are provided to teach the inmate a useful skill. Carpentry, HVAC, auto body/mechanic, electronics repair, masonry, gardening, upholstery, and welding are just a few of the vocational skills that an inmate can learn. Inmates are strongly encouraged to participate in these programs as what they learn can provide the inmates with a new skill set that can make it easier to find a job once they are released.

Mission Statement - The primary mission of the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison at Corcoran (CSATF/SP) is to protect the public by ensuring those inmates who are remanded to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) remain in custody until they are scheduled to be released. CSATF/SP will accomplish this by employing the highest standards of “Correctional Professionalism” in the performance of our duties.

Protect inmates by ensuring the CSATF/SP properly classify and house them within Departmental guidelines, by holding the inmate population and staff responsible for adhering to Departmental Policies and Procedures, and fairly enforcing all law and regulations.

Provide the inmate population access to the Department’s Disability Placement Program (DPP), Developmental Disabled Program (DDP), medical, dental, and mental health services that meet the applicable standards. Work with medical staff to ensure competent, compassionate, and professional care is provided at all times.

Covid Visitation Information

All 35 CDCR prisons will offer limited video visiting starting this month to allow friends and family a way to safely connect with incarcerated people. In order to reduce noise levels in video visiting areas, effective immediately incarcerated people are authorized to bring their personal earphones/headphones to their scheduled visit. They will be required to disinfect them prior to connecting them to the computer. Staff will direct individuals when and where to connect. Institutions have also been instructed to ensure canteens are well-stocked with earphones for purchase.

If a reservation request is successful, confirmation emails will arrive with the subject line “Webex meeting invitation.” Please do not delete – this email contains a link to join the video visit and details on time and day of the confirmed visit. Please check your spam or junk folder in your email account if you don’t immediately see the confirmation in your inbox.

Please note: Incarcerated people in isolation or quarantine will not be able to participate in video visiting.

CDCR recognizes visiting is an important way to maintain family and community ties. At the same time, our first priority is the health and safety of those who live in and work in our facilities.

CDCR will now begin to offer real-time video visiting as a safe way for incarcerated people to see and speak with their loved ones. We have developed a virtual process in cooperation with California Correctional Health Care Services and the California Department of Public Health.

Under the new system, each inmate will have the opportunity for a free 30-minute video visit every 30 days. This includes holiday visits. Visits will take place on weekends and holidays. Most facilities will schedule their visits between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., but hours may vary.

Scheduling Video Visits

Prospective visitors must submit visiting requests directly to the institution where their loved one is housed, using the designated email addresses for each institution:

Only those individuals who have already been approved as a visitor may make an appointment. Step-by-step instructions can be found here. VPASS will no longer be used to schedule a visit.

Reservations will be taken weekly, beginning each Saturday at 8 a.m. through Monday at 8 a.m. for visits the following weekend. Please note, emails received outside the timeframe allowed will not be rolled over to the following weekend for review. Instead, a new request must be submitted during the following week reservation timeframe. Reservations are currently only available for the first five institutions. Not all reservations may be accepted because of space and equipment limitations.
