The inmates housed at Southeastern Correctional located at 5900 B.I.S. Rd in Lancaster, 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.

SCC is comprised of the main compound located in Lancaster Ohio called Lancaster Unit, and an annex called Hocking Unit that is about 30 miles from the main compound. Hocking Unit houses approximately 450 inmates and Southeastern Correctional houses about 2,081 inmates of minimum/medium custody and are held in open dormitories. This facility participates in the correctional industries program allowing inmates to work in health tech cleaning supplies. Additionally, inmates are offered adult basic education and can earn a GED during their incarceration. Southeastern Correctional offers vocational programs in electrical wiring, building maintenance, farming, custodial work, plumbing, HVAC, recovery operations, and welding. Religious worship services are made available through the Chaplain's office.

Unique Programs

Harvest - The Recovery Services Department at the Southeastern Correctional Institution offers a reentry-approved, earned credit-approved three-month cognitive behavioral therapy alcohol and drug treatment program. The Harvest Intensive Outpatient treatment program focuses on helping participants develop cognitive strategies and positive behavioral skills to restructure their lifestyle. Upon successful completion of the program, participants are eligible for continuing care services that include professionally facilitated group meetings and Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous fellowship meetings.

Intensive Program Prison (IPP) - The IPP program is a voluntary program that allows the offender a second chance to change. Program eligibility is determined at the reception phase of the offender's incarceration. The offender completes ninety days of actual incarceration and is then placed on post-release supervision for an appropriate period of time. The SCI IPP Environmentally Conscientious Opportunities (ECO) system incorporates three components, education, skill development, and programming to provide the participant with work-related skills, training, and experience to increase their understanding of environmental issues and the green economy, while simultaneously strengthening their academic and labor market skills, thus enhancing their opportunity for gainful employment upon release from incarceration.

Reading Room - The reading rooms encourage family literacy by providing a pleasant and comfortable setting for both child and incarcerated parents. Each room is stocked with a wide variety of children’s books and has an inmate narrator who reads to the visiting children twice a day. The role of the inmate narrator is to read picture books to the children in much the same manner that children’s hours would be done at a public library. A variety of arts and craft supplies for the children are also available in most of the rooms. Many of the supplies and books are donated by employees and service organizations.
