Question Northern Idaho Correctiona Center - NICI

Would anyone know of changes that have taken place since 2004 at NICI?
I understand that NICI changed during 2007 to only or primarily have substance abuse users (drugs/alcohol) now verses prior it was everyone and their brother for a second chance. And it was a one time deal and if you blew it then the next step was prison prison if you failed NICI.
I found an article that stated there is now an on site psychologist who does evaluations where as this wasn't present prior in 2004/2005 either. Previously they would not accept prior evaluations from physicians for ADD or ADHD.
It was simply hard core boot camp - no matter what your issue. When did this second chance start 'to get to the core/root of the issue'? How true is this? Is this real or simply more Idaho/Marine system of appeasing the media?
If it's still the same system as before then I'd just like to know for sure.
Any information will be appreciated and particularily those who have complete this difficult situation.

Not sure how much NICI has changed since I went through there in late 1996 to early 1997, but I've heard its gotten a lot more lax. But for offenders with mental health issues, they generally get to do their 6-month Riders on the Yard (ISCI) in either Unit 14 or Unit 16, instead of being subjected to all the stress that a "boot-camp" style setting can cause up there at NICI.
