Missouri behavioral health programs enhance offender treatment options

Missouri behavioral health programs enhance offender treatment optionsThe utilization of the Corizon Health Missouri reentry website is in full effect, and first year implementation reports show there are approximately 600 visitors to the site each month—missouri.corizonreentry.com. Of those, eighty percent are unique, or new, visitors. This growth is expected to continue as the need for the services referred by the reentry website increases. Additional enhancements to the website are currently underway.

The E.A.G.L.E. Program is currently being implemented throughout the Missouri Department of Corrections (DOC). The E.A.G.L.E. Program is an intensive in-cell program designed to improve and enhance overall communication, teach thinking processes, encourage positive reactions to anger, boost self-esteem and work toward adjusting negative behaviors. The program targets offenders in long-term segregation, while a second model will focus on those offenders suffering from serious mental illness.

Both the reentry website and the E.A.G.L.E. Program reinforce the Corizon Health Vision of providing quality healthcare and reentry services that help to improve the health and safety of our patients, reduce recidivism, and better the communities where we all live and work.
