It’s estimated that over half of the incarcerated individuals in the United States suffer from a substance use disorder on top of another prevalent mental disorder.
Our primary goal is to provide corrections environments with programs that will prevent offender recidivism by offering carefully-designed and scientifically-based treatment plans to inmates.
These recovery programs can assist in the development of coping skills and support systems to promote long-term satisfaction, quality of life, and rehabilitation.
Unfortunately, while some correctional facilities offer basic drug rehabilitation programs, they often lack important components, such as medication assisted treatment and comprehensive aftercare plans. Access to well-designed prison treatment plans can reduce rates of relapse and drug-related fatalities for inmates upon release. That’s why we offer SUD treatment in corrections environments.
At Lake Behavioral Health, we aim to provide compassionate and effective care to individuals suffering from substance abuse across all walks of life.
Many communities are beginning to understand the importance of providing educational resources, treatments, and support systems to those who have been imprisoned following drug abuse. The following are some of the SUD treatment services Lake Behavioral Health can provide correctional facilities:
MAT can help ease inmates into the recovery process by reducing the harmful effects of withdrawal.
We offer individual and group counseling to assist in breaking self-defeating thinking, emotions, and actions.
These evaluations are performed so treatment plans can take into account co-occurring disorders.
A crucial component to preventing recidivism, aftercare helps patients to avoid relapse and maintains a healthy lifestyle post-treatment.
These, as well as several other recovery support services from peer specialists, can help inmates to start taking the steps towards lifelong sobriety in a correctional setting and stick to them upon their eventual release.
In-prison treatment can save the lives of those suffering from substance abuse disorder and improve communities. The implementation of these services can reduce rates of relapse, criminality, inmate misconduct, overdose, and recidivism among those who’ve been incarcerated. Not to mention, improve the overall mental health of patients. Upon release, these benefits allow individuals to mend relationships and encourage them to pursue healthy opportunities such as employment or higher education. SUD treatment in prisons means communities can see economic growth, and previously incarcerated individuals can pursue a happier, healthier life.
