Long-Term Offender Pilot Program (LTOPP)

The LTOPP is a voluntary program that provides evidenced-based treatment programming to inmates who are serving long-term sentences. Services are provided in individual and group settings to address the following major criminogenic areas:

  • Substance Use Disorder
  • Criminal Thinking
  • Anger Management
  • Family Relationships
  • Victim Impact
  • Transitions

This prison-based program is part of the Office of Offender Services – In-Prison Programs.

Locations Available:

  • Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF)
  • California Men’s Colony (CMC)
  • California State Prison, Solano (SOL)

Length of Program:

The length of the program varies, based on each individual’s assessed needs.


Inmates will be placed in the LTOPP by a Classification Committee on a voluntary basis, based on their eligibility requirements (see below).

Eligibility Requirements:

Inmates may be enrolled if they are housed within the general population, and are not precluded from placement at a LTOPP facility. They must have appeared before the Board of Parole Hearings (BPH) for Initial Parole Consideration, been denied parole, and have sufficient time to complete the program prior to their next Parole hearing. Totally medically disabled inmates will require clearance by a classification committee prior to placement.
