  • The Cheyenne Mountain Re-Entry Center is a medium secure reentry treatment facility designed to reduce recidivism for Colorado Department of Corrections offenders.
  • CEC completed construction on CMRC in June 2005.
  • CMRC received its first residents on August 15, 2005.


  • CMRC's goal is to address criminogenic behaviors and social influences that allow for recidivism and to reinforce pro-social and positive lifestyle habits that will assist residents in successfully transitioning upon their reentry into the community.
  • The program is structured around the Positive Peer Community model which is designed to address issues unique to pre-release offenders with an emphasis on community stabilization, employment, relapse prevention, and preparation for supervised community living.
  • Various strategic therapeutic interventions and behavior modification techniques are used to promote and reinforce positive change.
  • CMRC provides a comprehensive array of assessments to determine an individualized course of treatment for each resident. Areas assessed include risk, academic, vocational, mental health, substance abuse and employability factors.
  • At CMRC cognitive, behavioral, and psycho-educational programs are utilized. Depending on a resident's treatment needs, rehabilitation programs include drug and alcohol, psychiatric, personal development, and mental health categories.
  • CMRC is accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA) and scored a perfect 100% on all mandatory and non-mandatory standards during its last accreditation.
