Thinking for a Change (T4C)
Thinking for a Change (T4C) is an integrated, cognitive behavioral change program for an offender that includes cognitive restructuring, social skills development, and development of problem-solving skills. There are 25 lessons designed for small groups. T4C can be used as one option in a continuum of interventions to address the cognitive, social, and emotional needs of offender populations.
Probation Incentive Program (PIP)
The Probation Incentive Program is designed to address the needs of the community in a manner that promotes public safety, and reduces recidivism rates. PIP is a comprehensive program that focuses on offenders who have a history of drug and/or alcohol abuse along with anti-social tendencies. The program is designed to meet the offender where he/she is in the recovery process. PIP offers services that will help guide a client on to a sober, healthy, and productive path. As with any program, it is up to the participant to make the appropriate changes for a sober lifestyle, and with support from the PIP staff the transition may be smoother.
