Intake and Screening

Eligibility and admission criteria established by the Facility Governing Board. Referrals are adult, male, felony offenders referred by the sentencing Courts of Common Pleas

Offenders referred to CCC must be sentenced in the Common Pleas Courts of Butler, Clermont or Warren Counties. Intake staff conducts face-to-face interviews and administers the Level of Service Inventory (LSI-R) along with a battery of questions to determine appropriateness and programming needs of every referral.


During the orientation period, the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI) is given to each new offender to identify the probability of chemical dependency. The Diagnostic Assessment Form (DAF) is also given to all new offenders to identify clinical and correctional needs.

Life Skills

Corrective Thinking (CT) is the core treatment curriculum used throughout the program, focusing on thinking barriers and correctives to enhance 10 life areas: Thinking, Family, Social, Spiritual, Job/School, Financial, Legal, Leisure, Health/Grooming, and Society/Community. This cognitively based curriculum is incorporated through specialized CT groups that continue throughout an offender’s stay, and in all aspects of programming include chemical dependency, education, and vocational groups.

Chemical Dependency

Offenders participate in chemical dependency treatment that focuses on connecting criminal behavior and chemical use/abuse, and provides a common method for overall behavioral change through chemical dependency process groups. The Corrective Thinking model has been blended into the chemical dependency curriculum and reinforces the need for personal accountability and consequences of actions.

Sexual Offender Treatment Track

Limited to a maximum of 16 non-violent sexual offenders at one time who are admitted for intensive sex offender treatment programming.  Although offenders are not permitted to leave the facility during their entire stay, all other aspects of the program are available to them.  They are assigned to a specific case manager who co-facilitates groups with a therapist specializing in sex offender treatment.  After successfully completing the program offenders are referred for 18 months of aftercare that is mandated by the sentencing courts.

Mental Health

Offenders who exhibit mental health difficulties have access to a mental health assessment by an LISW on staff if needed.  If a referral or more in-depth assessment and/or treatment is warranted, CCC utilizes the appropriate community mental health provider.

Offenders with a wide range of educational needs are assisted by certified teachers through classes from basic literacy to preparing and taking the GED exam.  The CASAS is provided to all new offenders to determine their education level.  Offenders who possess a high school diploma or GED can become literacy tutors by completing the required training while assisting other offenders with their learning.   

Anger Management

All offenders participate in anger and stress management groups through the Corrective Thinking process. In addition, new offenders who are identified through referral information as having a history of poor anger management are required to participate in a group utilizing a curriculum that specifically targets anger issues.

Domestic Violence Track

Offenders with Domestic Violence as their committal offense and/or with two or more prior Domestic Violence charges are referred for this cognitive group treatment, to increase recognition and accountability for violence in family situations.


Offenders who successfully complete the program must have employment secured in their home community before being released from the facility; therefore, they progress into the re-entry phase in the final weeks of the program.  Employment Specialists provide work-related training to offenders.  CCC also operates kitchen and maintenance training tracks and an on-site Copy Shop that are designed to prepare offenders to work in the community after their release.

Family Services

Designed to assist the offender and significant others in being part of a supportive home environment after release.  Services are provided to the offender individually or the family as a group and include program orientation that takes place prior to visitation, parenting education, intervention, and referral to appropriate community agencies.

Aftercare Services

Offenders from all 3 counties are referred to local agencies for services in their home community.  Sex offenders are required to attend 18 months of aftercare.

CCC conducts a random sampling of offenders 90 days after successful termination, and the information gathered is used to identify areas of concern and success for graduates as well as a drop in risk/need score.

As part of Continued Quality Improvement (CQI), CCC staff determines if graduates continue to work for the company they secured employment with while in the re-entry phase by contacting employers 90 days after discharge.  This allows for continued improvement in securing the most appropriate employment available to the offender.
