Abstract

The Addiction Treatment Unit is a dual diagnosis program which exists in the California Department of Corrections. It is housed in the California Medical Facility in Vacaville, California. Program residents must meet the diagnostic criteria of having a major mental disorder substantiated by a DSM-IV Axis I diagnosis and also meet the criteria for a substance abuse/dependence disorder. All patients are housed in one wing of the facility, which isbased on the format of a modified therapeutic community and focuses on theconcept of recovery. A multidisciplinary treatment team comprised of a psychiatrist, a psychologist, a social worker and a psychiatric technician delivers clinical interventions, including individual and group therapy as well as medication management. The focus of the drug treatment aspect is an Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous approach based on 12-Step philosophy. Research involving other therapeutic communities running in prisons is discussed as is the aspect of dual diagnosis programs. Logistical and environmental constraints which pose challenges to running the Addiction TreatmentUnit are considered. A summary section reflects on aspects which have beensuccessful, what has not worked or has been changed and upcoming program revisions.
