Dr. Eddie Warrior Correctional Center

Dr. Eddie Warrior Correctional Center is a minimum-security prison for female inmates that is located in Taft, Oklahoma. This facility has the capacity to house 900 inmates, and it is operated by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. 

The Dr. Eddie Warrior Correctional Center (EWCC) is located on the original site of the Indian Mission School Haloche Industrial Institute in Taft. In 1909, the site became the Deaf, Blind, and Orphan Institute, serving children under a variety of other names. In 1986, ODOC took possession of the site and opened it as a prison in 1989.

The facility for women is named after Dr. Eddie Walter Warrior, who was business manager of the DB&O Institute, superintendent of Muskogee County Schools, and a principal/superintendent of the Taft school system.

Visiting Hours and Rules

An inmate's security level dictates how many hours she may visit with approved visitors. EWCC is a minimum-security facility, and its inmates may receive up to eight hours per week, excluding holidays.

State-recognized holidays that fall on Monday through Friday are "free" visiting days. That means that, while an inmates' allowable number of hours for visiting still corresponds with their security level, holiday visitation will not count toward their total number of allowed visitation hours.

If the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, visitation hours count on total visiting privilege level hours.

Visitation Hours are as follows:
Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m
Sundays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All state-recognized holidays

Visiting Application

All inmate visitors must submit a “Visitor Request Form” before they are allowed to visit.  You can find a copy of it here.

Background checks will be completed on everyone over 18 or older, and your inmate will notify you when the process is complete. The approval process takes approximately eight weeks once the Visitor Request Form has been returned to EWCC.

Dress Code

The following clothing items are prohibited in the visiting room: 

  • Shorts, skorts, skirts, or dresses shorter than the top of the kneecap or tight fitting. 
  • Wrap-around skirts, dresses/skirts with split seam higher than the top of the knee cap.
  • Tube-tops, Tank-tops, Crop-tops, Halter-tops, Spaghetti-top blouses, Sleeveless/transparent or mesh tops/blouses.

Programs For Inmates


Education is a key component in avoiding re-incarceration. EWCC offers literacy courses as well as Pre-High School Equivalency and High School Equivalency diplomas. College courses (not provided through state funding) are also available to inmates who can pay for them, or those who have alternative funding or scholarships.

Substance Abuse Treatment

Nearly all state inmates have some form of substance abuse problem, and for many, that problem is closely related to their criminal behavior. To counteract this, EWCC's programming teaches inmates ways to avoid relapse and helps them develop cognitive, social, emotional, and coping skills.

Criminal Thinking

EWCC offers Thinking for a Change, and Associates 4 Success programs to address the thinking, judgment errors, and relationships linked with criminal thinking/behavior.


EWCC inmates can get technical training through a CareerTech Skills Center, which prepares them for workforce entry after release. CareerTech also helps inmates find skill-related employment after release.Courses at EWCC include Career Readiness, and Transportation Distribution and Logistics for Manufacturing.

By the end of fiscal year 2020, CareerTech will have served more than 300 students. The Manufacturing, Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics (MGF/TDL) employment success rate for this year is 100%, making on average $13.99 an hour. 

All CareerTech students receive industry OSHA credential training in both Career Ready and MFG/TDL programs. Over the last four years, CareerTech MFG/TDL and Career Ready programs have served 1599 students at Eddie Warrior. Within those four years, only three individuals returned to prison, that’s less than .01%

Specialized Units

EWCC’s Regimented Treatment Program combines physical training with six cognitive behavioral treatment programs. Participating inmates learn self-discipline and must show initiative, motivation, and improved behavior to graduate.

Helping Women Recover Program

This program offers evidence-based, trauma informed substance abuse treatment, cognitive processing therapy, domestic violence and relapse prevention therapeutic groups.
