You can help keep the Cognitive Emergence Program at Mabel Bassett Correctional Center where some 1,200 women are incarcerated.  In the past See More


At Mabel Bassett Correctional Center in McLoud, OK, there are some 1200 women incarcerated, many of whom are addicted to meth and have had traumatic brain injuiries. Over the past 5 years, 261 women have completed the Cognitive Emergence Program, designed to rewire the cognitive processing in their brains so they think differently and are more able to make sound & appropriate decisions that can affect their lives and the lives of others. These are women who have children at home who are often neglected and headed for a life of imprisonment themselves. To break this cycle, only 9 women who have completed this voluntary cognitive & behavioral development program have only re-offended and returned to prison. This is a recidivism rate of 3.9%! 80% were addicted to meth and other drugs, and 95% had traumatic brain injuries from being hit in the head with tire irons, 2x4s, and physical assaults. As the funding levels have been sharply decreased with the State of Oklahoma having a 1.3 billion dollar deficit, the OK Department of Oklahoma can't fund this valuable program. Your contribution will ensure that this program can be continued and these women can successfully return to their families and begin living a productive life. All donations are tax deductible as the OK Department of Corrections is a tax exempt agency. For more information, please contact me, Dr. John N.
