Inmate is presently participating in RDAP. These goals were established on January 20, 2010 and will be reviewed every sixty (60) days and as needed during his treatment. The projected completion date is October 20, 2010.
Problem #1: I have a long history of engaging in criminal behavior and living a criminal lifestyle. I struggle with listening to authority figures because I don’t think that anyone has a right to tell me what to do, even if it is to follow the same rules everyone else is expected to follow. I have limited regard for others’ feelings and circumstances I may put them in. As long as I come out on top I don’t care about anyone else.
Goal #1: I will learn to live a more pro-social life by following all the rules of the RDAP program. I will attempt to develop empathy for others, by completing activities that encourages me to consider other’s feelings and circumstances. I will acknowledge that my best thinking resulted in my incarceration, which is indicative that my decision-making ability is impaired and needs to be restructured.
Treatment Activity #1A: List five occasions when antisocial behavior led to negative consequences. Write a three page essay outlining these actions and consequences. I will present this to my therapeutic community. Mar 10.
Treatment Activity #1B: Sign up and complete a life management class before release to learn to responsibly manage my life.
Treatment Activity #1C: I will correct errors in thinking (blaming, super-optimism, entitlement, etc.) in order to learn how to identify when I am thinking criminally. I will complete RSA’s on these thinking errors once weekly and record them in my journal.
Problem #2: I have an ADDICTION to alcohol and used this substance to cope with daily life. My addiction let to my poor choices that have negatively affected my life, and the lives around me.
Goal #2: To make positive choices that will lead to more benefiting outcomes. Remain abstinent from drug/alcohol use.
Treatment Activity #2A: I will learn alternative coping skills that can be used instead of turning back to my addiction. I will make a list of these coping skills and present them to group. Due May 5.
Treatment Activity #2B: Share my thoughts of relapse with group and be open for feedback.
Treatment Activity #2C: Complete a relapse prevention plan during the Relapse Prevention phase of treatment. I need to develop a relapse prevention/recovery maintenance plan. I need to work on prioritizing my recovery, gaining employment, and reuniting with family and friends.
Treatment Activity #2D: Develop a list of ten (10) high risk situations that can threaten my recovery efforts. Develop a written plan (at least one page each) on how I can deal with each high risk situation I listed. Due May 25.
Problem #3: I am CLOSE-MINDED when something goes against my thinking or beliefs. (Selfish, Self-Centered, and Resistant).
Goal #3: To become more open-minded and humble in my daily life activities in order to reduce arrogance, selfishness, and resistance.
Treatment Activity #3A: I will perform one RSA per week on how I demonstrated selfishness, self-centeredness, and resistance during the week.
Treatment Activity #3B: Attend a minimum of one self-help meeting per week and seek information regarding open-mindedness and its importance to recovery.
Problem #4: I struggle with SUPER-OPTIMISM. I am over-confident and arrogant in my thinking and decision-making. I believe I can get away with my crimes and makes excuses for my behavior. I do what I want to do (self-absorbed) and have a disregard for others, rules, and authority.
Goal #4: Accept responsibility for my behaviors and hold myself accountable. Engage in pro-social behaviors.
Treatment Activity #4A: Identify how super-optimism (believing I can get away with crime), making excuses, and disregard for people, rules, and authority has a negative impact on me. I will journal my criminal thoughts a minimum of once per week.
Treatment Activity #4B: Research the origin of this difficulty, starting with the issues with my family. Share my findings with process group and be open for feedback. By April 20.
Problem #5: I need to develop a relapse prevention/recovery maintenance plan. I need to work on prioritizing my recovery, gaining employment, and reuniting with family and friends after a lengthy incarceration.
Goal #5: Be prepared to successfully integrate back into society while remaining sober.
Treatment Activity #5A: Using the ‘Recovery Maintenance’ journal, prepare my Recovery Maintenance Plan and present it to the group for feedback. Modify my plan based on the group’s feedback. Present during the eighth month of treatment.
Treatment Activity #5B: I will include specific ways I plan to remain free from substance abuse and criminal activity, such as regular attendance at recovery group meetings,
aftercare, obtaining a sponsor or mentor, exhibiting responsible behavior, setting healthy boundaries, and helping others in their recovery.
Treatment Activity #5C: I will practice using assertive communication skills to decline invitations for drug use or criminal activity from others. I will present a realistic skit as an upbeat ritual.
