Post Prison Transitional Housing is a program designed to assist offenders by providing drug and substance abuse prevention services, transitional housing, and other such support services. These services assist them in making successful re-entry into the community and help them to create and maintain a drug-free, independent, law-abiding lifestyle. The program provides services to those offenders who need a structured environment to promote their personal recovery from substance abuse. Housing, food (two (2) meals a day), electricity, local phone service, job placement assistance, and other transition services are provided as needed. The PRTH program targets offenders who have completed a Department in-prison or community-based drug treatment program. The services provided are secular and do not include a faith-based element.
