The Cognitive Behavioral Interventions for Sex Offenders (CBI-SO) Program is a pilot program which provides cognitive behavioral treatment programming to address the criminogenic needs of offenders who are required to register pursuant to Penal Code section 290 (PC 290). The focus of CBI-SO is to increase public safety by reducing criminal behavior and recidivism for offenders who will be mandated to participate in community-based treatment programs upon release.
CBI-SO is only available at the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility.
The CBI-SO Program is an eight-month program.
To be eligible for placement in this program, offenders must have a Static 99R score of four or higher; be within 13-months of their scheduled release date; be required to register pursuant to PC 290; be Medium A/B Custody; be Level II/III housing; not serving a life sentence; and no active felony hold, warrant, or detainer that may result in additional incarceration.
An offender who is serving, or has served, their time on good behavior has access to many rehabilitative services and programs if they are determined to be in need. See Rehabilitative and Educational Services
