The Idaho Department of Correction provides evidence-based treatment to inmates. The ultimate goal is to reduce recidivism as inmates are released to communities.

All inmates are assessed to determine their medical condition, programmatic needs, education level, and mental health. The information from these assessments is used to format a rehabilitation program to address each individual's identified risk and needs.

Programs and services address the following areas:

  • Cognitive/Behavioral
  • Mental health
  • Substance abuse
  • Education and vocational education
  • Family reunification
  • Aftercare
  • Sex offender programming

The basis of quality treatment and education is twofold: Good assessments and good case plans. Case plans prioritize inmate's needs and create a plan for accountability that can lead to successful reintegration into our communities.
