The Melton Center is a 65-bed facility for women in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facility (SAFPF) program. This program is designed to enhance the physical, spiritual, social, and emotional needs of women transitioning back into society from prison free from alcohol or drugs. These clients are referred and placed at the facility by TDCJ, the court system, or their parole/probation officer. Throughout this program, women obtain gainful employment, learn how to manage recovery and everyday life, and continue to get the specialized substance abuse treatment services that will enhance motivation for continued change.
