The following is a list of the most common medications (but not limited to) that are NOT allowed at Connections.  Should you be currently taking any of these medications, you should taper off of these meds under a Medical Doctor’s care.

  1. Any form of Narcotic Pain Medications.  Some examples are:  Lortabs, Percodan, Percoset, Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Methadone, Codeine, Morphine, etc., including all generic forms.

  2. Any form of Sedatives or Tranquilers. Some examples are:  Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, Clonazepam, Diazepam, Paxipam, Halazepam, Lorazepam, Oxazepam, Prazepam (Anything that ends in pam).

  3. Any type of Sleeping Pill or Sleeping aid.  Trazodone, Desyrel, Amitriptyline, Sonata etc.

  4. Any form of Muscle Relaxant: Soma, Carisoprodol, Flexerile, Cyclobenzaprine, etc.

The above list is not the complete list of addictive prescriptions that are the most common not approved medications.   We cannot treat your addictions if you are taking addictive medications.  Also, if the CCP screening committee does approve you for treatment, and you are taking any approved medications (considered on a case by case basis), then you must have, either a 60-day supply of these medications, or a current prescription of approved medications and the financial means of filling such prescriptions.

Please note: CCP does not have a Licensed Medical Practitioner on staff, so should you arrive at CCP, while taking a non-approved medication, which requires a Licensed Medical Practitioner to facilitate a taper, DOC will move you to either MSP or WSP, where they have the appropriate medical staff, and you will have to re-apply for CCP.

Connections Corrections usually has a waiting list for admission and the time frame for availability of an admission date does vary.  The admissions staff at CCP understands that many clients do remain incarcerated until his/her admission date arrives.  We do our best to get you admitted as soon as possible.  Thank you for your interest in the Connections Corrections Program.


By signing this application for admission, I do believe I have answered all of the questions and provided the information honestly to the best of my ability.
