Program Description:

The W.O.R.T.H Center is a Community Based Correctional Facility (CBCF) that houses felony offenders for a period not to exceed six (6) months.

The goal of the W.O.R.T.H. Center is to provide a highly structured program offering evidence based cognitive behavioral programming. W.O.R.T.H. is a secure setting with much emphasis on public safety, while also providing residents the ability to transition back into their home community through passes, community service, and work release.

All Core Programming is Cognitive Behaviorally based. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is how we address our resident’s maladaptive thinking and negative emotions. This enables us to challenge negative thinking and emotions and gives residents the ability to find new thinking to reduce their high risk thoughts and feelings. If a resident’s risky thoughts and behaviors can be lowered, the risk level is lowered thus enabling a resident to function as a productive member of society.

W.O.R.T.H. Center Treatment Overview:

Trained staff members administer assessments to determine what each resident’s individual needs are. The assessments used are: Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI-3), Texas Christian University Motivational Assessment (TCU Mot), Texas Christian Criminal Thinking Scale Assessment (TCU CTS),Ohio Risk Assessment System (ORAS), Bio-Psychosocial, Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) etc. There is collateral information that is utilized as well when assessing residents; Pre-Sentence Investigation (PSI) as well as a meeting with each resident’s family or support.

These assessments are utilized to determine individualized needs and allow an individualized plan to be developed. We are able to complete diagnostic assessments on residents who present with mental health issues and utilize this information in meeting treatment needs as well. All residents are required dependent upon risk scores to attend a variety of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Groups. It is our goal to address specific needs throughout the program to enable the resident to move through our program smoothly and work towards successful release. Residents begin to meet with outside service providers the last part of their programming stay. We offer Aftercare to seven of our nine counties; two of our counties (Allen and Hancock) have their own aftercare services in place. Our aftercare workers meet with each resident of the seven counties to begin working on the following: housing, jobs, barriers to treatment, meeting with probation officers and an evolving relapse prevention plan.

Each resident is assigned a Case Manager when they enter into the program. This Case Manager will work with the resident from entry until release. This worker will utilize completed assessments to develop an individualized treatment plan a minimum of two times while in the program. These treatment plans will identify the criminogenic needs that should be addressed and an action plan of how to address them. Should any client present with mental health issues we are also equipped to provide not only a diagnostic but also counseling services and medication in some circumstances. The W.O.R.T.H. Center also provides education services and supportive services for residents to gain employment during the latter part of their stay.
