Treating populations in need at the Minnehaha County Jail.

Jail Treatment & Services for Substance Use

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, an estimated 65% of individuals in U.S. correctional facilities are living with a substance abuse disorder. Focusing on treatment for this population is critical to promote recovery and prevent recidivism.

Carroll Institute offers a comprehensive jail treatment drug and alcohol program for adults who are incarcerated. Clients are referred by public defenders or attorneys to begin treatment during their sentence at the Minnehaha County Jail.

What does the program include?

We use curriculum including a variety of videos, lectures and assignments. Clients use workbooks on Criminal and Addictive Thinking, Drug and Alcohol Education, and Release and Reintegration Preparation. Together, we focus on investigation, self-esteem, anger/grief issues, goal setting, relationship issues, support systems and relapse triggers during this program.

How long does the program run?
The length of the program is dependent on client progress and incarceration timelines. The suggested timeframe is a minimum of 6 weeks.
What are the program requirements?
All clients are required to complete a Treatment Needs Assessment and follow the recommendations as appropriate while incarcerated and upon discharge.
