Counseling – Jefferson County, CO

The Counseling Unit trains sworn and civilian staff as well as offers services to inmates. The Counseling Unit provides counseling, recreation, education and religion services for inmates. 
Counselors are responsible for screening each new inmate to determine whether he or she is mentally unstable, suicidal or has been prescribed psychotropic medications. Counselors use an interview and a review of each inmate's criminal record to classify the inmate as maximum, medium or minimum security. 
For incarcerated inmates, counselors arrange Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings (taught by outside volunteers) and teach classes on anger management and averting domestic violence. An on-staff psychiatrist treats inmates who are referred by counselors.
