Exclamation Please Help Me! I need some info on "Back on Track" program

Hi, I am trying to find out information about "back on track" program. I can't find it anywhere on the internet. My bf is currently at coal township, and they just took a urine(meaning he should be leaving there in 2-3weeks he said). I am trying to figure out what other prisons have the back on track program because coaltownship doesnt, I heard graterford does. I want to know where he is going and more about the program. Please help me thanksssssss

Never heard of it, and I'm a member of the Prison Society who did 10 years upstate. Sounds like one of those jailhouse legends.

I think it's a little known program out of Pittsburgh [or somewhere close by]; I recall meeting someone who went to this program post release a few years ago. He was there about 6 months or so.

If you go to the PA DOC website they have resource guides for each county in PA [to help those who are leaving prison]. This might be one place to start looking to see if it is a real program or "another prison legend" as Bob mentioned.

Good luck to you and your loved one!
