The inmates housed at Community Correctional Center located at 5234 State Rte 63 in Lebanon, OH 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.

Intake and Screening

Eligibility and admission criteria established by the Facility Governing Board. Referrals are adult, male, felony offenders referred by the sentencing Courts of Common Pleas. Staff members conduct face-to-face interviews, and administer the Ohio Risk Assessment System (ORAS), if needed, along with a battery of questions to determine the appropriateness and programming needs of every referral.


During the orientation period, the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI) is given to each new offender to identify the probability of chemical dependency. The Diagnostic Assessment Form (DAF) is given to all new offenders who identify as high probability for Substance Abuse or have mental health needs.


Life Skills

Corrective Thinking (CT) is the core treatment curriculum used throughout the program, focusing on thinking barriers and correctives to enhance 10 life areas: Thinking, Family, Social, Spiritual, Job/School, Financial, Legal, Leisure, Health/Grooming, and Society/Community. This cognitively based curriculum is incorporated through specialized CT groups that continue throughout an offender’s stay, and in all aspects of programming include chemical dependency, education, and vocational groups.

Chemical Dependency

Offenders participate in chemical dependency treatment that focuses on connecting criminal and substance use behavior, and provides a common method for overall behavioral change through chemical dependency processing groups and 12-step involvement. The Corrective Thinking model has been blended into the chemical dependency curriculum and reinforces the need for personal accountability and consequences of actions.

Sexual Offender Treatment

Limited to a maximum of 16 non-violent, non-predatory sexual offenders at one time. Sex offenders assessed for their risk to reoffend, using the Static and Stable. They are assigned to a specific case manager and follow an evidence based curriculum. Their length of stay at CCC is determined by their risk level.

Mental Health Treatment

Offenders who exhibit mental health difficulties have access to a mental health assessment by licensed staff. If a referral or more in-depth assessment and/or treatment is warranted, CCC utilizes the appropriate community mental health provider.


Offenders with a wide range of educational needs are assisted by certified teachers in classes from basic literacy to preparing and taking the GED exam. The CASAS is administered to all new offenders to determine their education level and class placement. Offenders who possess a high school diploma or GED can become tutors by assisting other offenders with their learning. The CASAS is also given to offenders just prior to discharge to determine their level of improvement. Students who score a level 5 or 6 on the CASAS testing can earn a voucher to take an official practice test for their GED. Once they pass this, they can request a voucher and schedule to take their GED at Warren County Career Center in the Pierson View Testing Lab.

Anger Management

All offenders with an identified need participate in anger and stress management groups through the Corrective Thinking process. In addition, new offenders who are identified through referral information as having a history of poor anger management are required to participate in a group utilizing a curriculum that specifically targets anger issues.

Domestic Violence

Offenders with Domestic Violence as their committal offense and/or with any such charges within the last five years will be assigned to this Track. Domestic Violence charges are referred for this cognitive treatment group to increase recognition and accountability for violence in family situations.


Offenders who successfully complete the program must have employment secured before being released from the facility; therefore, they progress into the re-entry phase in the final weeks of the program. Employment Specialists provide work-related training to offenders. The Warren County One-Stop Employment Resource Center is utilized for additional vocational training. CCC also operates kitchen and maintenance training tracks and an on-site Copy Shop that are designed to prepare offenders to work in the community after their release.

Family Services

This part of the program is designed to assist the offender and significant others in being part of a supportive home environment after release. Services are provided to the offender individually or the family as a group and include program orientation that takes place prior to visitation, parenting education, intervention, and referral to appropriate community agencies.

Aftercare Services

Offenders from all counties are referred to local agencies for services in their home community. Sex offenders are referred to their probation officers for aftercare needs.

CCC conducts a random sampling of offenders 90 days after successful termination, and the information gathered is used to identify areas of concern and success for graduates as well as a drop in risk/need score.

As part of Continued Quality Improvement (CQI), CCC staff monitors graduates' job retention with the company they secured employment with while in the re-entry phase. Employers are contacted 90 days after discharge. This allows for continued improvement in securing the most appropriate employment available to the offender.
