CorrectiveSolutions utilizes evidence-based curriculum and evidence-informed strategies to deliver cognitive behavioral change classes. Class instruction and class materials are designed around the principle that thinking (an internal behavior) drives actions (external behaviors). The common goal with all classes is help participants identify and change their negative thought patterns and beliefs that are at the core of their criminal actions.
CorrectiveSolutions has delivered cognitive behavioral change classes for criminal justice agencies for over 30 years. Our qualified instructors have group facilitator experience and advanced degrees and deliver classes in a dynamic learning environment with LIVE interactive webinars.

During three consecutive Friday nights, the defendant is required to participate in a two-hour LIVE, INTERACTIVE webinar. This unique class delivery format helps disrupt patterns of behavior just as the weekend is about to start and typical drinking incidents occur. In addition to instruction related to misuse and illegal use of substances, the class also address some of the long-term consequences of under-age drinking violations like impact of scholarships, job opportunities, etc.
CS Courses offers a 4.5-hour session for gun owners to review and reinforce best gun safety practices, create greater self-awareness for responsible gun ownership and a personal relationship with firearms to help prevent misuse or accidents. This course covers the 4 Universal Laws of firearm safety as well as 12 rules of gun handling. This session is not a replacement for the practical, hands-on training.
As part of our case management services, CorrectiveSolutions helps participants identify and schedule community service work at appropriate community and non-profit organizations, and verify with the organizations that the work was complete. City and County Parks and Recreation Departments, Salvation Army, Goodwill, and local faith-based organizations are examples of agencies that participants regularly complete their community service hours. Each participant will be provided a referral from that must be signed by an appropriate agency representative to confirm completion of the required hours and returned to CorrectiveSolutions. Our case management team then contacts the agency for verification.
Participants required to undergo drug testing will be tested randomly at the frequency indicated on the referral and utilizing observed urine collection at a CorrectiveSolutions office (in-network) or a participating collection site (out-of-network). The drug test panel screens for the following drugs: Amphetamines, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Cocaine, Creatinine, Methadone, Opiates, Oxycodone, and THC. All urine specimens are sent to a laboratory for screening. Once the test results are received, you will receive an email notifying you the results are available to view in our SnapView app.

Participants ordered to provide an apology to the victim will be required to write a hand-written letter acknowledging the harm they caused and expressing regret for their actions. Letters must be sent to a CorrectiveSolutions case manager for review for appropriateness before CorrectiveSolutions sends the letter to the victim. It is recommended that participants complete an appropriate cognitive behavioral change class prior to completing this requirement.
If the participant’s referral includes victim restitution, the referring agency must provide the victim contact information and the amount owed. CorrectiveSolutions will work to collect and disburse victim restitution.
