NEOCAP is a Community Based Corrections Facility (CBCF) administered by a Facility Governing Board and is supported by a Judicial Advisory Board comprised of seven Common Pleas Court judges. NEOCAP serves Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, Portage, and Trumbull Counties.

NEOCAP'S MISSION is to provide a viable sentencing option to the Common Pleas Courts of the five member counties and protect the public safety by providing an intensive, highly structured treatment program in a secure facility. NEOCAP provides an environment where change through learning new behavior can occur to enable residents to return to their communities a productive members of society.

NEOCAP is qualified to provide residential substance abuse treatment programming, and is a Pilot Project for treating Dual Diagnosed offenders funded by the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services


Each resident is given a variety of assessments in order to develop an individualized treatment plan.  This plan is created to address such issues as mental health, substance abuse, attitude and orientation, employment/vocational training, education, and housing.  The resident participates in an intensive cognitive behavioral curriculum that has proven to be effective in addressing criminal behavior.  The goal is to reduce the likelihood of relapsing or reoffending. Residents move through the curriculum by meeting their individualized program goals. As they progress, the residents gradually reintegrate into their communities.  Residents must demonstrate appropriate behavior by obtaining and maintaining employment (if appropriate), attending support group meetings, and becoming pro-social members of their communities.

During the offender’s first two (2) weeks in the program, he/she completes a series of risk/needs assessments to identify his/her criminogenic treatment needs, treatment readiness, and motivation level. Assessments include: Level of Service Inventory-Revised (LSI-R), Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI-3), Adult Self Assessment Questionnaire (ADSAQ), Adult Substance Use Survey-Revised (ASUS-R), Beck Depression Inventory, How I Think Questionnaire (HIT), and Anger Disorders Scale (ADS). In addition to these instruments, the Pre-Sentence Investigation (PSI) report and other collateral information is used to determine risk/needs, treatment readiness, and motivation level.

Case Management Services

The offender is assigned a Case Manager, who assists him/her in developing a treatment plan with goals and objectives to address the identified criminogenic factors. The offender immediately starts to address the goals and objectives in his/her treatment plan. Goals that cannot be obtained within the four (4) to six (6) months of residency will become a part of the offender’s release plans, which are forwarded to the probation department. The probation officers enforce, monitor, and supervise compliance with the release plan.

Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment Curriculum

Groups are developed to be comprehensive in nature and address the total range of the offender’ criminogenic needs. Each of the groups address major criminogenic areas and use curriculums that are evidence-based and proven to reduce criminal behavior in the adult offender population. Cognitive-behavioral methods are applied in all group activities
