Latest Available Institution Annual Report
The mission of the Chippewa Valley Correctional Treatment Facility (CVCTF) is to provide minimum custody inmates, and offenders placed here as an Alternative To Revocation (ATR), specific programming to address their needs in the substance abuse area. This will be accomplished by using a wide range of professionals to deliver specific modules of treatment and by developing a facility-wide culture of reinforcement for positive behavior. Our goal is to facilitate reintegration to the community with a greater chance of succeeding.
Special historical notes and other institutional information
Transferred from the Northern Wisconsin Center to the Department Of Corrections, Division of Adult Institutions, under the original name of Highview, the four-story facility underwent extensive remodeling in 2003 – 2004. Located in Chippewa Falls, the facility accepted its first inmates on April 20, 2004. The all-male, minimum-security institution is designed to resolve the specific needs of inmates with alcohol and other drug abuse problems (AODA). The facility reserves 300 beds for treatment while 150 beds are maintained for workers within and outside the facility. Of the 300 treatment beds, 10 provide an ATR resource to the Division of Community Corrections for ATR offenders’ essential program needs and to avoid their being sent or returned to prison.
CVCTF offers inmates the opportunity to satisfy their obligations to the State while building personal recovery foundations for themselves and their families. This facility allows inmates in program to participate in: community service projects such as the Chippewa Falls Irvine Park Christmas Village, the Fish Crib Projects in Ladysmith and Lake Wissota, sorting donations for Building Hope in Eau Claire, cleaning the Chippewa Hockey Rink, and various inmate-driven fundraisers. This allows inmates to give back to the community, after having taken so much from their communities in the commission of their crimes.
