Unique Programs
The Oasis Therapeutic Community (TC) is a collaborative effort between the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, and the Pickaway Correctional Institution servicing male offenders with substance abuse problems. OASIS stands for “Our Awareness of Self Increases Success” and the name was created by its first residents. TC focuses the residents on right living in a pro-social community and recovery through a shared therapeutic structure that includes communal meetings, encounter groups, education, organized recreation, and the like. There are 2 paths in OASIS: one is an Intensive Program Prison model that runs 4 months at PCI and 3 months in the community. The other is a long term program running 9-12 months in the institution. Residents are held to a high degree of accountability. Staff are there to help guide and assist, but the residents are the primary role models holding each other to a high standard. TC has proven very effective in helping offenders “go home to stay”.
OPI Print Shop is a full service "sheet fed" printing facility. It employs offenders in the production of official forms, business cards, brochures, training manuals, flyers, bindery, quick copy digital production, typesetting, quality assurance, inventory and packaging.
Sinclair Community College began offering Advanced Job Training courses during fall of 2012. Certificate offerings are designed to increase employability upon release from incarceration. Certificates range from one semester to three semesters in duration and include the following options: Food Production Specialist, Bakery Specialist, Pastry Specialist, Social Service Assistant, Communication Specialist, User Support Technician, Re-entry Preparation, Entrepreneurship and Business Foundations, and Supply Chain Technician. Courses are taught by Sinclair Community College faculty both traditionally and via distance learning. Students receive the same caliber of instruction in the institutional setting that they would if they were attending classes at any of Sinclair's campuses. The students are further supported by a twenty computer lab where they can work on assignments and hone their computer skills in preparation for their re-entry into society.
