Unit 7 - Medium Custody Service Area
Institution Unit Supervisor:
The mission of the Medium Custody Service
Area is to provide a safe, non-violent, secure and structured treatment
environment to address symptom management and the individual referral
reasons of inmates to the Wisconsin Resource Center, as well as to
enhance skills needed for a successful and non-problematic assimilation
upon return to the DOC.
The Medium Custody program focuses on
achieving self-governed compliance with rules and policies, commitment
to a productive schedule, appropriate socialization, adequate coping
skills and overall independent living skills. It encourages inmates to
take responsibility for self growth and reinforces this through a
collaborative effort to address areas that present as problematic and
interfere in functioning. Development and application of these skills
will increase the ability to negotiate a traditional institutional
living environment and/or the community. The Treatment Team promotes and
encourages programming, therapy, medication compliance, and healthy
lifestyle choices while concurrently preparing for transfer to the
Department of Corrections, medium custody Institutions.
