The Pickaway Correctional Institution seeks to provide offenders of felony convictions within the State of Ohio a safe, efficient, humane and appropriately secure correctional institution, while maintaining dedication to the protection of citizens of the State of Ohio and the local community. Mindful of Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction's initiatives of re-entry, community service and victim reparation, we seek to instill in offenders an improved sense of responsibility and the capacity to become law-abiding members of society.

Unique Programs
The Therapeutic Community (TC) are long-term (6-12 months) residential Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) treatment programs. The TC approach views AOD abuse as a reflection of chronic deficits in social, vocational, familial, economic, and personality development. The aim of the Therapeutic Community is to promote prosocial behavior, attitudes, and values as a method to attain abstinence from alcohol and other drugs and eliminate antisocial behaviors. The TC’s at PCI and at the Ohio Reformatory for Women are collaborative efforts between the Ohio DR&C and the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services.

Who R U? Group is conducted for eight weeks and offered at least three times per year. Each session consists of 10-12 participants and is held once per week for two hours. The program is divided into several different topics throughout the eight weeks. The first three weeks are spent covering personality types including strengths and weaknesses as well as perception of self through the eyes of others. These first three weeks set the foundation for the remainder of topics discussed. The other topics included in the group are personal responsibility, attitude, communication skills, job readiness, and "staying out". Each session includes lecture, group activities/discussions, and homework review. At the end of the group, each participant completes an evaluation of the overall program.
