Central Ohio Youth Center is a regional jail facility that handles the intake from the Union County Sheriff's arrests but also from several surrounding counties located at 18100 St Rte 4 Marysville, OH. This cooperative prison is funded by all of the counties that hold their detainees and sentenced inmates.

The Central Ohio Youth Center (COYC) is a 38-bed, four-county district (Delaware, Madison, Union and Champaign) joint juvenile detention facility. The Community Residential Center (CRC) is a program for chronic juvenile offenders.

Communication: Upon admission to COYC, residents are permitted to make one five-minute telephone call to their custodial parent(s)/legal guardian. After this initial call, residents are permitted one phone call per week until they achieve higher levels. Residents are permitted to receive telephone calls from probation/parole officers, attorneys and Children’s Services caseworkers.

Letters to residents at COYC will be opened by detention officers and checked for contraband. Residents will be provided two stamps per week until they reach higher levels. Outgoing and incoming mail is censored as deemed necessary by the Superintendent for security reasons.

Assessment Services: A variety of assessment instruments are utilized to determine each resident’s risks and needs. Information from these assessments is utilized to develop an individualized treatment plan.

Educational Services: All residents are required to attend school while at COYC, even if they have dropped out, have a GED, or have graduated. COYC is an authorized GED test site.

Program Services: CRC residents are required to participate in programs, groups, and activities. The program builds on cognitive-behavioral techniques (CBT), motivational enhancement therapy (MET), risk factors management, relapse prevention, and social learning concepts. The program targets criminal thinking errors and teaches the Stop-Think-Act method for changing these thought patterns.

Clinical Services: CRC residents are assigned a therapist upon admission. The therapist develops a case management plan, and provides individual and family therapy. Each CRC resident receives individual therapy at least once per week. The frequency and duration of family therapy sessions is determined on a case-by-case basis.

COYC’s Health Care Coordinator conducts initial health screens and sick call. The Health Care Coordinator also checks residents when illnesses and/or injuries have been reported, and refers them to COYC’s on-site physician for further evaluation if necessary.

Clothing: All residents are required to wear COYC uniforms. Clean clothing is provided daily, and clean bed linens are provided at least weekly.
