Special Needs Unit (SNU)[edit]

The SNU is a mental health treatment unit designed to house Seriously Mentally Ill offenders who have been designated as needing intensive mental health treatment and programming within the Indiana Department of Correction. Offender participants may be transferred into the unit from any other facility in the state. When participants arrive, they are assessed and placed in the program's phase system. Phase three offenders attend all programming and meals within the unit, but do attend recreation in the gym. Phase four offenders additionally go outside of the unit for special programs and meals. Phase five offenders can attend programming outside the unit and attend meals and recreation with WVCF PLUS program participants.
