  • compilation
  • availability


The Director of the Department of Corrections shall maintain a directory of public and private rehabilitative programs known and available to corrections agencies of the state and of each county. For purposes of this subsection, “rehabilitative program” means a planned activity, in a custodial or noncustodial context, designed and implemented to treat drug or alcohol abuse, to prevent criminal sexual behavior, to modify a propensity to commit crimes against persons or property or to achieve restitution for losses caused by an offender and includes programs that employ the device of mediation between the victim and offender. Rehabilitative programs included in the directory that are designed and implemented to treat drug or alcohol abuse must meet minimum standards adopted by the Oregon Health Authority under ORS 430.357 (Minimum standards). The director shall include:


The name, address and telephone number of the program and the identity of its director or other principal contact;


The geographical jurisdiction of the program;


The types of offenders that the program claims to be able to serve and the criteria that the program applies in selecting or soliciting cases;


The claims of the program regarding its effectiveness in reducing recidivism, achieving restitution or otherwise serving correctional objectives;


An assessment by the relevant corrections agency of the actual effectiveness of the program; and


The capacity of the program for new cases.


The Director of the Department of Corrections shall make the directory available to the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission and to judges in a form that will allow sentencing judges to determine what rehabilitative programs are appropriate and available to the offender during any period of probation, imprisonment or local incarceration and post-prison supervision. The Director of the Department of Corrections shall also make the directory available to its employees who prepare presentence reports and proposed release plans for submission to the State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision.


The directory shall be updated as frequently as is practical, but no less often than every six months. [1989 c.790 §7a; 2011 c.673 §4]
