Intake & Orientation is the first module in the program. Offenders will learn what to expect in a treatment program and become familiar with some basic rules of such a program.

Intake and Orientation Workbook (32169W) and Guide (32169G)

The 112 page participant workbook, written at a sixth-grade level, contains materials that reflect real-life experiences of offenders with addiction and activities that demonstrate addictive and criminal thought processes. Thirty-six exercises cover: Welcome to Treatment, Living in a Therapeutic Community, Introduction to Thinking about Your Thinking, and Introduction to Addiction and Recovery.

 

Intake and Orientation DVD (32169V)

Inmates, not actors, talk about their biggest fears and greatest challenges in becoming involved in a prison treatment program. Whether their initial motivation to participate was to get out of general population for a while, to please a spouse or family member, or to truly make life changes, the inmates candidly discuss their reasons for entering a cognitive-behavioral therapy program and their experiences during treatment. Among their discoveries about treatment:

 

  • change won't happen unless you are honest about your attitudes, behaviors, and choices
  • in time, you have to be willing to share feelings and disclose personal information
  • as a group member you are responsible for holding yourself and others accountable for words and actions
  • reaching out to others for help and support is difficult but necessary

 Taped in Minnesota correctional facilities, A New Direction video series allows real inmates to tell the real story about recovering from a life of addiction and crime. The result is a powerful, direct, and liberating message about finding a life of recovery and freedom.
