The Correctional Association of New York (CA) visited Hale Creek Correctional Facility on October 28th and 29th, 2008. Hale Creek is a medium security prison located in Johnstown, New York, approximately 50 miles northwest of Albany. It opened in 1990 and in 1992 became the first institution in the United States to be considered an “adult correctional treatment program.” At the time of our visit, 459 inmates resided at the prison, which had a capacity to house 480 men. Every inmate in Hale Creek is enrolled in Phase I of the Comprehensive Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatment (CASAT) program. The prison also offers a variety of vocational and educational programs.
