AVALON Correctional Services (Residential Halfway Houses Reintegration Programs)
Carver Transitional Center
Carver Center is a 556-bed American Correctional Association accredited male and female halfway house located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Avalon was awarded a contract in 1985 by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health to provide residential substance abuse aftercare services to 25 offenders referred from the Oklahoma Department of Corrections (ODOC). Carver’s facilities and programs have been expanded numerous times since 1985 to its current status of 556-beds.
Carver provides employment placement assistance, case management, and a 30-day/100-hour transitional program for the ODOC residents. Approximately 95% of the Carver residents referred by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections are employed in the community. Carver Center also contracts to provide residential program services for the US Pretrial Services office for the Western District of Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health certifies Carver Center as a Drug and Alcohol treatment provider. Carver’s treatment team provides residential and outpatient substance abuse treatment programs, education, testing, counseling, 12-step programs, and relapse prevention classes. The treatment team also provides counseling for individuals, groups, and families. Counseling programs include anger management, and cognitive behavior modification.
Carver provides three nutritious meals per day, including a sack lunch provided to residents scheduled to leave the center for employment. Carver provides transportation for employment, medical appointments, and court and legal appointments.
