Patuxent Institution

Patuxent Institution

The Patuxent Institution falls under the administrative authority of the Assistant Secretary for Treatment Services because it is the only dedicated treatment facility within the Department. This facility provides treatment to men, women and youth in its Eligible Person (EP) program through the use of remediation management that combines psychiatry, psychology, social work and custody on each team. Patuxent is also the location for a number of substance abuse treatment programs for Division of Correction male and female offenders as well as the Correctional Mental Health Center-Jessup, the in-patient mental health unit. The Director serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the Institution and is assisted by three Associate Directors: the Warden who maintains responsibility for custody and security of the Institution; the Associate Director for Behavioral Sciences who manages the EP program; and the Associate Director for Psychiatry who attends to the psychiatric issues relating to the Patuxent treatment regime.
