Criminogenic Addiction Recovery Academy (CARA)
The Sheriff and jail administration at Kennebec County Correctional Facility, in coordination with the Maine Board of Corrections, transformed the facility into a jail that specialized in intensively addressing substance abuse and criminal thinking.
In collaboration with Crisis & Counseling Centers, these departments launched a pilot program in August of 2010 for inmates with clear evidence of long-standing substance abuse and criminal behavior: the Criminogenic Addiction Recovery Academy.
