Sex Offender Treatment Services
For male residents (CBISO)
IDOC provides its residents access to programming for a successful transition into the community. Treatment for residents uses risk-based assessments and follows research-based guidelines developed by the University of Cincinnati Cognitive Behavioral Interventions model that teaches strategies for avoiding sexual reoffending and related behaviors. There is a heavy emphasis on skill building activities to assist with emotional, social, cognitive, and coping skill development.
For female residents (Choices)
Treatment for female residents follows a cognitive behavioral treatment meant to educate about sexual offending and the emotional and physical processes that lead to abusive behavior. Female residents are also taught coping responses and skills to positively control their lives by making healthy, informed choices. Sex offender treatment services for female residents are approximately six months.
Presently, this programming is provided for residents at most of the male inmate facilities. Programming for female residents is provided at the Pocatello Women's Correctional Center (PWCC).
