The primary mission of the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison at Corcoran (SATF/CSP) is to protect the public by ensuring those inmates who are remanded to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) remain in custody, until they are scheduled to be released.  CSATF/SP will accomplish this by employing the highest standards of “Correctional Professionalism” in the performance of our duties.

Protect staff by providing the proper equipment and best training that is available in the use of the equipment, and by ensuring staff are informed of Departmental Policy and Procedures, while consistently reinforcing that all behavior must fall within those guidelines.

Protect inmates by ensuring the CSATF/SP properly classify and house them within Departmental guidelines, by holding the inmate population and staff responsible for adhering to Departmental Policies and Procedures, and fairly enforcing all law and regulations.

Provide the inmate population access to the Department’s Disability Placement Program (DPP), Developmental Disabled Program (DDP), medical, dental, and mental health services that meet the applicable standards. Work with medical staff to ensure competent, compassionate, and professional care is provided at all times.

Provide educational, vocational, re-entry and self-help programs that are current by society’s standards that will provide inmates life skills, and work skills that can be used in support of their efforts at reintegration into society.

Encourage public awareness and interactivity through or Citizens’ Advisory Counsel, and facilitating appropriate access by outside agencies, legislators, the media, and public to maintain accountability.

Local Inmate Family Councils (IFC’s) are a gathering of family and friends of the incarcerated who meet regularly with Wardens to support visiting since keeping strong family connections with loved ones is a powerful rehabilitative tool. These IFC’s promote visiting by clarifying rules and regulations as well as discussing health, education, vocational training, packages, books, and related issues. For more information on connecting with a local IFC, please visit the Statewide IFC website.
