CTF hosts two ISUDT graduations

ISUDT participants at CTF graduations.
525 graduates were required to complete a 14-week CBI Outpatient program and a 28-week Cognitive Behavioral 2 (CB2) Life Skills Course.

Correctional Training Facility (CTF) and the Division of Rehabilitative Programs hosted two Integrated Substance Use Disorder Treatment (ISUDT) Cognitive Behavioral Interventions (CBI) graduations on Facilities B and C.

ISUDT is a comprehensive and evidence-based program which identifies incarcerated people at risk for Substance Use Disorder (SUD) related harms. The program provides treatment, reducing risks of overdose and other complications associated with SUD. It’s an approach that includes enrollment in CBI and may include Medication Assisted Treatment.

A total of 525 graduates were required to complete a 14-week CBI Outpatient program and a 28-week CBI Life Skills course.

During the course, participants learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns which have a negative influence on behavior.

Additionally, CBI participants receive one week of Milestone Completion Credits off their sentence for every 80 hours of participation and one additional week upon successful program completion.

“Our goal at CTF is continue to support the population by providing them with services and tools needed to assist them with integration back into society,” said Fermin Loza, Program Director.

At the graduation, participants shared what they learned about thinking patterns and how the lack of emotional knowledge has affected their lives. By learning about their thinking, feelings, and beliefs, they said they are now able to strive for a positive future.
