Program E: Diagnostic

Program Authorization: R.S. 15:821-840.2 and 36:401-409

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The EHCC Adult Reception and Diagnostic Center (ARDC) provides one of the most modern facilities and procedures for diagnostic and classification services in the South. Newly committed state inmates receive a complete medical examination, a thorough psychological evaluation, and an in-depth social workup. At the end of this two-week-long process, inmates are assigned to one of the state correctional facilities. This placement is based on security status, specific needs of each inmate, and institutional availability and needs. Inmates are then transferred to the facility best suited to their own needs and the needs of society. Adult male inmates are screened upon intake at the ARDC. Adult female inmates are screened upon intake at the Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women (LCIW). Professional staff from the EHCC aid in the intake procedures at the LCIW, which is located nearby in St. Gabriel. The Diagnostic Program comprises approximately 10.6% of the total institution budget.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indictors are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
