Solutions: Alternative Screenings

Automated tools for more detailed oversight of specific inmate populations to identify needs and ensure the best outcomes.

Identifying the appropriate plans for inmates requires analyses and data that can be difficult without the proper methods and tools. Our alternative screenings simplify decisions and support workflows to reduce risk in the facility and lower recidivism rates through more effective reintegration. You’ll gain access to a wide ranging library of screenings that will promote change through a proven evidence-based approach.

What they do

With access to more than 25 nationally recognized instruments covering past trauma, drug screening, motivation levels, sexual violence, PTSD, and more, you can address the needs of all inmates.

The software can be easily included with your system so that facility staff can make better decisions to help prevent adverse experiences before they occur and protect against poor outcomes. 

This allows for seamless development of individualized plans to support the development and execution of treatment decisions and court-ordered conditions.

Successful treatment and re-entry are both dependent upon inmates receiving proper programming while in custody. By applying the correct screenings, you develop better inmate treatment plans, and determine who should receive specialized recidivism-reduction programming and who may be eligible for early release. 

Inmates are also more receptive to plans that are designed around their needs and situation. When a system makes informed decisions at every step, inmates, staff, and community members have greater confidence in its ability to provide positive and lasting results.
