Programs For Inmates

OCC uses evidence-based practices and core principles of effective Substance Use Disorder (SUD) intervention strategies. OCC SUD programming involves a cognitive-behavioral component. 

OCC offers work release programs with local employers where employment is provided for qualified inmates, with an emphasis on maintaining that employment placement after the inmate’s release. 

The OCC project crew assists local government agencies and non-profit organizations on a variety of work projects. Community service opportunities are also offered to inmates, with supervision.

In cooperation with the Department of Natural Resources, inmates at Oregon Correctional Center raise day old pheasant chicks through adulthood. They are released to local communities to facilitate youth hunts and hunters education programs.
