This Assessment and Treatment Center is designated for male and female inmates who are within 18 months of parole eligibility and who have been approved by the Institutional Classification Committee (I.C.C.) for community release programs. These inmates shall be assigned to Bo Robinson for approximately 30-60 days prior to placement in a halfway house or community treatment program. Inmates will undergo a risk/needs assessment in addition to orientation and treatment. The purpose of this assessment shall be to identify and quantify characteristics and behaviors that promote criminal lifestyles. Through this process "targeted need areas" are identified for which individual treatment interventions are then designed. Assessments are periodically re-administered to determine the inmate's response to treatment and reduction in risk indicators. While assigned to Bo Robinson inmates undergo intensive treatment 8 hours per day, including individual and group counseling. Inmates will not be eligible to participate in work release or furloughs and access to the community shall be restricted.
