Penn Pavilion is accredited with the American Correctional Association (ACA) scoring a rating of 100% on mandatory and non-mandatory standards.

CEC Penn Pavilion contracts with state and local governments to provide community residential reentry services to offenders released or diverted from prison. The Inpatient and Outpatient Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) Treatment Programs are licensed by the PA Department of Drug and Alcohol Programming.  Treatment focuses on substance abuse education and changing criminal behaviors. Penn Pavilion acts as a community-based Therapeutic Community (TC) providing treatment for Level II of the 24-month State Intermediate Punishment (SIP) Program. SIP is designed to provide an option in state prison sentencing for those offenders who have AOD issues (addiction or offense motivated by use of AOD); have less serious offenses; and, would have received a sentence of 30 months or more.

The Work Release Program focuses on academically and vocationally assessing residents to direct their efforts toward ultimately obtaining employment.  Counselors assist residents in obtaining vocational training and Adult Basic Education (ABE)/GED Services and coordinate with Parole on client needs in attending additional parole mandated groups.

Penn Pavilion partners with local non-profit and government agencies for community services. The Self-Pay Program provides an alternative to incarceration for county offenders facing mandatory sentencing for DUI and various other drug-related convictions. Penn Pavilion provides all program participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to lead productive lifestyles prior to reintegration into their communities.
