At the Correctional Development Center, we focus on a variety of efforts to improve the chances offenders do not come back to jail. Two highly acclaimed state-licensed programs operate out of this facility: the Sheriff's Anti-Violence Effort (SAVE), a treatment program for domestic violence perpetrators; and, New Avenues, a 45-day intensive alcohol and drug treatment program. Our staff works to get to the root of an offender's cycle of crime and we know that many times the cause is addiction. Other programs at this facility increase the chance an inmate can become a productive citizen upon release and that is the end goal for us all. Female offender issues are also a priority. Understanding the varying needs of this population, the CDC staff has taken great stride to design programs especially for female offenders.
