At Alano we understand the importance of evidence-based and manual-driven substance abuse treatment for offenders. Our clinical staff have decades of experience working with offenders at the El Paso Criminal Justice Center and various prisons within the Colorado Department of Corrections. Our agency and our clinical staff are recognized as approved treatment providers (ATP) for both substance abuse and mental health services. Since we began serving the Pikes Peak region in 1995 we have collaborated with the 4th Judicial District and are recognized by the probation department and court system as having great communication and promoting a high level of accountability among our mutual clients.
Our offender-specific treatment curriculum includes:
• Strategies for Self-Improvement and Change (SSC):
SSC seeks to effectively prevent criminal recidivism and substance abuse relapse within community based and correctional settings. It is designed to treat offenders at all levels of the judicial system including: diversion, pre-sentencing, drug court, probation, parole, community corrections, and the department of corrections. Many providers offer Phase 1 of SSC, but at Alano we offer Phases I-III.
• Corrective Actions:
Corrective Actions is an evidence-based program that was developed by the Change Companies and designed to treat substance-abusing individuals who are involved with the criminal justice system. This curriculum involves an activity known as interactive journaling which encourages participants to develop a system of values and strategies that leads to responsible thinking and behaviors.
• Courage to Change:
Courage to Change was also developed by the Change Companies and designed to treat substance-abusing individuals who are involved with the criminal justice system. It also involves interactive journaling, and topics include developing pro-social values, responsible thinking, self-control, peer relationships, family ties, skills for successful living, strategies for success, and family support.
• Getting it Right:
Getting it Right was also developed by the Change Companies and designed to treat substance-abusing individuals who are involved with the criminal justice system. It also involves interactive journaling, and topics include personal growth, responsible thinking, life management, relapse prevention, and the development of a change plan.
