Higher risk offenders will be given the opportunity to attend the new Making Choices program. This intensive 100 hour program provides offenders with the opportunity to develop and practise more effective self management, communication and interpersonal skills. This program is also suitable for those offenders who display a propensity toward violent behaviour.
The Medium Intensity Sexual Offender Program will be available to address sexual offending in the community. Development work is continuing however, to determine how the Agency can best meet the intervention needs of sexual offenders while keeping the community safe. In addition, the Sexual Offending Maintenance Program has been developed to ensure an offender's risk to the community does not escalate and to facilitate a smooth reintegration upon release from custody.
Getting SMART is a 12-session substance abuse program, available in both custodial and community settings. It aims to assist offenders by teaching tools and techniques with a specific focus on providing support to offenders who have chosen to abstain, or are considering abstinence, from any type of addictive behaviour (substances or activities).
