The Willard Drug Treatment Center in New York is a correctional facility that helps rehabilitate drug users. Willard provides an option for drug offenders other than a full prison sentence by putting them through a vigorous, three-month, in-patient course followed by six months of out-patient work in the program.
Willard utilizes a shock incarceration program, which is similar to boot camp. The center opened in 1995 in Seneca County and can host up to 900 men and women. Aside from substance abuse treatment and counseling, parolees can also receive vocational training for jobs such as building maintenance and masonry. After their release, the rehabilitated spend six months working closely with a parole officer in the outside world.
