Specialized treatment programs include substance abuse, aggression management, sex offender, and intensive therapeutic programming. Academic and career readiness training are provided on campus. Residents are able to earn a high school or high school equivalency diploma. Recreation, religious services, and volunteer programming are also provided.

All residents are afforded visitation privileges. Personal items must be secured in the vehicle; keys must be surrendered at the door. All visitors are subject to a search. All visitors 13 years of age and older must have picture identification and be on a pre-approved visitor list. Visitors are expected to refrain from wearing suggestive or offensive clothing.

Visitation is confined to business days and hours. Exceptions to these guidelines require the approval of the JCC Superintendent.
