Program Description Taken from The First Step Act Approved Program Guide 1/2022 WaySafe is a planning and decision-making intervention targeting adults in custody with substance use disorders in the last phase of treatment or approaching release. It helps participants make better decisions around health risk behaviors during the transition to the community. The goal of this program is to improve decision-making skills so participants can avoid at-risk behaviors regarding HIV and other viral illnesses spread by sex or blood contact. The facilitator utilizes psychoeducational and process-oriented interventions over six weekly sessions.
Employees should consult the program material for the length and duration of the class. Program materials and updated SENTRY codes are located under the FSA Programs link on the Reentry Services Division Sallyport page.
