Josephine County Community Corrections has focused on implementing evidence based practices not only in supervision and treatment programs but in the way in which parole and probation offices interact and share information with treatment providers. Currently, offenders are assessed within the first 30 days of supervision using the OCMS (Oregon Case Management System) Risk Assessment Tool to determine the risk to re-offend and the LSCMI (Level of Service Case Management Inventory) to determine the level of need. Criminogenic needs are those factors determined to, when addressed properly, reduce recidivism. Upon administering these tools, offenders are assigned a level of risk, with the high and medium risk offenders required to attend a triage during which the parole and probation officer shares information about the case with a mental health specialist, drug and alcohol counselor and a cognitive behavioral treatment provider resulting in a case plan and treatment referral created. This establishes a level of communication between the offender, parole and probation officer and the treatment provider from the beginning. Officers and treatment counselors have been trained in the use of these instruments and also in the development of the case plans.

Josephine County Community Corrections Treatment Program is licensed by the Oregon Office of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs. The above described system was developed subsequent to evaluation of the Oregon Department of Corrections Correctional Program Checklist (CPC) in June of 2005, in which the program was scored below average in some areas such as sharing of information and communication as well as evidence based alcohol and drug treatment curriculum. The Matrix Model of treatment was implemented in June 2006, with all counselors being trained in the program and the program manager being trained as a “key supervisor” who not only monitors fidelity of this program but of other alcohol and drug programs in the community. Other key supervisors share information about the Matrix Model and how it is working in their agencies. A second CPC conducted in April 2007 showed a marked improvement scoring a “very satisfactory”.

Other programs offered by Community Corrections are Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT), MRT Relapse Prevention, DUII-Change Model, and a new group started specifically for the Alternative Incarceration Program (AIP) offenders called “Getting it Right” which is approximately 12 months in length in hopes of establishing some natural mentors for new post-prison releases and “Breaking Barriers”, a week long intensive cognitive program which is also offered several times a year.
