PES was approved by the Sacramento County Community Corrections Partnership to receive funds for evidence-based offender treatment services for adults incarcerated at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center. The goal of the project is to reduce recidivism by providing criminal thinking and substance abuse. The primary program will be Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), an evidence based cognitive-behavioral program which has proven effectiveness in reducing criminal recidivism. PES will focus on treating those who are at medium to high risk of re-offending.

PES created our Forensic Treatment Program for Felony Offenders in recognition of the need for evidence based and innovative programs that address emerging criminal justice issues in California’s counties. PES’ forensic treatment program incorporates evidence based interventions to effectively treat criminal thinking/behaviors, substance use disorders, support successful community re-entry and reduce recidivism.
