In all residential facilities, offenders are offered the opportunity to participate in classes and treatment programs to increase their likelihood of successfully maintaining a crime-free life once the residential portion of their sentences has ended.
Rehabilitation is a long-term strategy of enhancing public safety by preventing future crimes. The level of programming available in a site varies in accordance with the mission of the facility. For example, the Bainbridge Probation Substance Abuse Treatment Center offers intensive substance abuse treatment and a range of other services. The county prisons, because of their focus on public service work, offered a much more limited range of services.
Although the staff that deliver classes and treatment programs in the institutions and centers are actually employees of the facilities themselves, development of the services is provided by Risk Reduction Service
