Short Term Intensive Residential Remediation (STIRRT) Program

The Short Term Intensive Residential Remediation (STIRRT) program began in 1996 as a short term residential program for men, 18 years or older, involved in the criminal justice system, and were at risk of returning to prison due to technical violations of probation or parole conditions.  Over the years, the program has evolved to a continuum of care for both men and women, 18 years of age or older, who are at risk of returning to the prison system.  

This continuum of care is designed to provide participants with an opportunity to engage in the necessary treatment, motivation and skills development necessary to help them stay out of the criminal justice system and successfully transition back into their communities.  The program is comprised of a short-term residential phase and up to 10 months of community based services.  In addition to substance use and mental health treatment services, participants can take advantage of assistance with transportation, some medication needs, help with reconnecting to family, and engagement in positive social and leisure activities.
