Spectrum’s Correctional Recovery Academy is an intensive residential treatment program for moderate to high risk/need offenders. Spectrum’s therapeutic community functions as a distinctive community within the host institution, providing a highly structured and supportive learning environment in which to address criminal and addictive behaviors. Emphasis is placed on mutual respect, accountability and responsibility.
Program objectives seek to address known contributors of substance abuse and criminal behavior such as dysfunctional interpersonal relations, poor impulse control, and inappropriate responses to authority. Throughout sequential treatment phases, offenders’ behaviors, attitudes, values and emotions are continually monitored, corrected and reinforced. The goal of programming is to reduce or eliminate drug and alcohol dependence, while ensuring a smooth reentry and successful adjustment to community living upon release.
