“We as a community, accept the actuality that decisive changes in our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors must reflect the empowerment of our mental, physical, and spiritual well being. We eagerly embrace the core principles; such as integrity, courage, and responsibility, as a guiding light toward the success of our future endeavors.”
What is Conquest?
CompDrug’s Conquest program is a prison based Therapeutic Community (TC) located at Chillicothe Correctional Institution (CCI). It is a comprehensive residential alcohol and drug treatment program utilizing the Therapeutic Community concept.
The structure is set up like a large family, with the staff representing the rational authority figure. There is a chain of command that must be followed with all community members striving to earn better jobs, privileges and status within the community. Members move up the ladder by complying with the rules, participation in all group activities and performing their job functions in a responsible manner. Family members must possess a desire to change and a willingness to redirect their lives. An increased level of honesty, self-awareness, and the ability to identify feelings are by-products of their honest efforts to bring about positive change in their lives.
