WHAT IS COOPERATIVE TREATMENT RELEASE?
The Stutsman County Correctional Center (SCCC) Cooperative Treatment Release (CTR) program is a collaborative effort between the SCCC, States Attorney’s Office, District Court and Thompkins Rehabilitation Center (TRC) to provide addiction treatment to offenders while serving a jail sentence.
Participation in CTR is a privilege and the SCCC or TRC retain the right to terminate or deny program participants.
Individuals ordered to serve a sentence at the SCCC with CTR consideration must report to the SCCC located on the 2nd floor at 205 6th Street Southeast, Jamestown on the date and time specified by the court. Only the sentencing judge may change report date.
- An individual must be sentenced through District Court to the SCCC with CTR consideration.
- The individual must submit a request of participation in the CTR to the Administrative Officer. Program staff will review the individual’s court order and determine the individual’s eligibility for release from the SCCC.
- The individual must be screened and approved by South Central Human Service Center staff to determine whether individual is suited for treatment.
There are no fees assessed for participation in the CTR.
Program participants will be held to a high standard and treated as such. The CTR rules will be enforced and any violations of the CTR rules may result in the loss of CTR, earned good time, future consideration for CTR and/or criminal charges.
