Starting programming while individuals are in-custody and transitioning to community-based programs upon release, facilitates consistency in treatment and promotes effectiveness in reducing recidivism.
The goal of evidence-based programming is to facilitate a successful transition to life at home, continue their treatment in the community, and maximize the impact of programs delivered to reduce recidivism. By assessing the risk and needs of individuals in jail or prison and delivering cognitive behavioral treatment programs while in-custody, the transition to a community-based program is seamless and behavior change is expedited.
Through the GEO Continuum of Care, we offer a nationwide capability to treat and support culturally unique, vulnerable populations through intensive in-custody, residential, and community-based treatment and support services. The GEO approach offers programs tailored to individuals involved in the criminal justice system and vary from in-custody and intensive residential treatment to community-based supervision and non-residential reentry centers.
