Unique Programs

  • The Short Term Offender Unit is designed to service offenders that are newly received into the prison that are serving sentences of 90 days or less.  The curriculum for the program was designed to enable the offenders by providing suitable programming that is accelerated to enhance their reentry back into the community. Daily classes on Life Skills, Coping Strategies, Family Services, Health and Wellness, Recovery Issues, Job Readiness, Dressing for Success, Finance Management  and other topics  make up this  comprehensive curriculum for the Short Term Offender program and address the 8 Reentry Domains of education, employment, marital and family , associates and social interaction, substance abuse, community functioning, personal and emotional and attitude.

  • Therapeutic Community (TC) are long-term (6-12 months) residential Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) treatment programs. The TC approach views AOD abuse as a reflection of chronic deficits in social, vocational, familial, economic, and personality development. The aim of the Therapeutic Community is to promote pro-social behavior, attitudes, and values as a method to attain abstinence from alcohol and other drugs and eliminate antisocial behaviors. The TC’s at ORW and Pickaway are collaborative efforts between the Ohio DR&C and the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services.

  • Mom and Kids Day:  The Ohio Reformatory for Women strives to promote family bonding in preparation for family reunification, with this in mind special family oriented events are scheduled twice a year.  A Mom and Me Day Camp is scheduled during the summer months and a Mom and Kids Day Holiday event is scheduled in December. These events allow families to come into the institution to spend a day with their loved one with a variety of events, entertainment food and fun. Information is provided in the living units detailing the selection process for these events.
