    I was in a group called Thinking for a Change (T4C) curriculum, this group is for offenders whose primary criminogenic need is criminal thinking. This is often the best fit for individuals who have a lengthy criminal history but do not meet the criteria for substance abuse, anger management, or criminal culture. In addition to criminal thinking, this group covers basic mental health issues, emotion management, dealing with adversity, and communication skills. If the supervising agent is unable to determine a criminogenic need, it is usually judgment, impulse control, or problem solving, all of which are covered in this group.
    I was involved in a fight I have been taking U.A.s since 2016 and they have all been clean. The counselor Craig Van Houtte alone with Alex Araya of CPA recommended me for substance abuse at CPA 3840 York St #230, Denver, CO 80205 in order to make more money not for treatment purposes. They are predators, you are not treated as a customer or a person. You are just a way to make money. Cpa and RMOMS/
