We offer the following programs and services:
High School Equivalency classes and testing
The jail’s research provides a clear message that obtaining a GED while incarcerated cannot be counted upon as a sole ticket out of poverty. However, post-secondary education and training programs are denied to credentialed drop outs, but available to GED holders. To the extent that post-secondary education and training provide increased opportunities of employment and subsequent wage gains, the GED functions as a gateway to employment and possible reductions in recidivism. While it is an expensive endeavor to categorize employers’ reactions to GED holders, it appears that Indiana employers accept the GED certificate as a signal of an applicant’s motivation, commitment to work, and other productive attributes.
Substance Abuse Classes
The Morgan County Jail's Substance Abuse Program has adopted the mission to provide effective substance abuse treatment to reduce offender substance abuse, thus increasing their potential for successful reintegration into society. We provide assessments, education, treatment, and referrals appropriate to each offender's individualized needs within the constraints of available resources.
Mental Health Counseling
Residential Substance Abuse Program (RSAP)
RSAP is a specialized intensive therapeutic community designed to treat offenders with severe drug addictions. The program is 90 days of intensive cognitive behavioral, evidenced based best practice counseling. Clients are exposed to up to 12-15 hours each day of programming to specifically assist the client to recover from the addiction, build social skills acceptable in society as well as job interviewing skills to help with their employment. Further, the clients work on peer and personal relationship skills to better assist in their recovery when released to their respective communities.
Narcotics Anonymous programs are those which are best described as self help and supportive in nature. Volunteers come into the facilities and share their life story that includes addiction to a drug along with examples of recovery implementation that the offenders can use in their lives.
Alcoholics Anonymous programs are those which are best described as self help and supportive in nature. Volunteers come into the facilities and share their life story that includes addiction to alcohol along with examples of recovery implementation that the offenders can use in their lives.
Inmate Worker Program
Work Release Program / Jail Corrections Worker Program
The Morgan County Jail Work Release provides an alternative sentencing option for those convicted of crimes that are non-violent and non-sex related. Residents are responsible for their own transportation, healthcare and food. Canteen food systems is the provider for meals. It is the responsibility of the resident to pay subsistence (room and board) while serving their sentence.
Residents of the work release are allowed to maintain ties to the community through employment, rehabilitative services, religious worship, community service and educational betterment. While maintaining these relationships are important, it is still a correctional environment, which means that all activities are monitored and approved before allowed.
