The Madison 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

PATHWAYS (Prisoners Attempting to Help Wayward Area Youth): This program is designed to educate at risk juvenile males about the importance of making positive life choices. In this reality based program, juveniles and their parents participate in group and individual discussions with selected inmate volunteers.
The HOPE Program is a behavior based program designed to address the needs of youthful offenders between the ages of 14 to 17. The program concepts are based on honor, opportunity, pride and education. Incentives for the offenders are given based on improved levels of behavior and efforts toward completing educational and social programs.
ADAPT (Adjustment During Actual Prison Time) is a mental health program targeted at inmates who are experiencing problems adjusting to prison life. This group is co-facilitated by a mental health clinician that teaches two of the four sessions on the more technical issues of depression, brain chemistry, anxiety, panic attacks and sleep hygiene. Cadre inmates assist with the other two sessions related to the daily experience of prison life.
