  Annotation: A process evaluation of the residential drug treatment program for male juvenile offenders at the Minnesota Correctional Facility at Red Wing assessed program design and implementation to provide feedback to enhance program strengths and improve existing or potential weaknesses and to prepare for a subsequent outcome evaluation.
  Abstract: Information came from individual and group interviews with staff, administrators, and residents; document reviews; a review of the facilities; and focus groups. Results revealed that the program functions from a team approach and uses a treatment model that integrates the Equip model, the Prepare Program, the Principles of Daily Living, and the Recovery Training. The program used individual, group, and psycho-educational modalities to assist juveniles in developing, implementing, and maintaining pro-social skills and behaviors, and recovery from alcohol abuse and other drug abuse. The staff and administration shared a sense of mission and direction in implementing the program. The program design was sound, appropriate to the clientele being served, and effective in facilitating positive change in the residents. However, the program needs to address systemic issues related to staffing and treatment philosophies if the program is to function optimally. In addition, both correctional officers and caseworkers have numerous training needs that will require funding so that the program can operate at peak performance.
