A New Plan

The Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio Board agrees to redirect available funding to develop its own inmate programming and services. Director, Dennis Sullivan made the proposal in the wake of a 90-day notification by Toledo-based Midwest Recovery Center to quit providing services, such as those for substance use disorder. Sullivan says the Midwest contract stipulated CCNO receive the services of three counselors, a supervisor and a nurse practitioner. However, Midwest has not met that staffing level recently and he believes CCNO can provide a higher level of service at a lower cost than Midwest. He proposed a plan for CCNO to begin in-house programming by hiring two licensed counselors, then once the program is up and running, to add a case manager.
