Programs For Inmates

KEY/CREST is a corrections-based and community-based multistage substance abuse treatment program for drug-involved offenders in the state of Delaware. CREST is the program available at Hazel D. Plant Women’s Treatment Facility.

CREST is the second component of the state’s substance abuse program. It is based on the therapeutic community model, which allow offenders recovering from substance abuse to continue their treatment as they transition into the community. Typically, offenders work during the day and return to their assigned center at night for therapy, counseling, or treatment. 

The CREST program is usually six months in duration. The first three months are spent entirely at the CREST Center, where offenders engage in full-time substance abuse treatment. During the next 3 months, offenders become involved in the work-release portion of the program and go through the following phases:

  • Entry, evaluation, and orientation: Offenders get used to life outside of prison.
  • Primary: Counselors and offenders explore the challenges and issues faced by individual offenders and prepare appropriate responses to minimize the likelihood of relapse.
  • Job-seeking: Offenders develop job seeking and interview skills.
  • Work release: Offenders maintain residence at CREST while working in the community.
