Prerelease Centers

Prerelease centers are designed to assist offenders with their transition from a secure facility back into the community, as well as provide an alternative to incarceration. The Montana Department of Corrections contracts with five nonprofit organizations and one county to provide four prerelease centers that serve female offenders and six prerelease centers that serve male offenders. 
Prerelease programs are generally six-month programs. Offenders live at the prerelease center, but work in the community, leaving and returning to the center according to a pre-approved schedule.  A wide range of treatment and programming, aimed at addressing court-ordered requirements and identified risks and needs, is offered in the center, as well as in the community.
