  • In January 1997, the Albert M. "Bo" Robinson Assessment and Treatment Center opened as a 320-bed, full minimum male halfway house facility.
  • In March 2004,  Bo Robinson opened its first 100-bed women's program.
  • Bo Robinson went through a second expansion in May 2008. This most recent state of the art addition brought the total bed capacity to 900-beds.


  • The goal of the facility is to provide an intensive treatment program that emphasizes relapse prevention and preparation for transfer into a work-release program.
  • The assessment process at Bo Robinson uses standardized and actuarially based instruments to gather information to determine an offender's current risk factors for public safety concerns and recidivism.
  • The assessment evaluation also gathers data to determine an offender's current treatment needs. After the data collection is complete, staff develop an assessment report used to create an individualized reentry treatment plan for each offender during his/her stay.
  • The treatment component consists of carefully selected therapeutic services including individual and group counseling; cognitive-behavioral training; substance abuse treatment; educational services; life skills; cultural diversity programs; family program; workforce development activities; work-release services; faith-based services.
  • The components are delivered in a variety of contexts, including lecture format, classroom instruction, small group sessions, and individual counseling.
  • The Alumni Association is very active at Bo Robinson and assists offenders in their transition from treatment back into the community through the provision of supportive services.
  • Bo Robinson is accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA) and scored a perfect 100% on all mandatory and non-mandatory standards during its last accreditation.
  • CEC is the service provider for Education and Health Centers of America, Inc at Bo Robinson.
