Facility Information

The Sheridan Correctional Center is an adult male medium security prison, totally dedicated to substance abuse treatment and is one of the largest substance abuse treatment programs in the nation. Sheridan Correctional Center was reopened on Jan. 2, 2004, to curb the trend in Illinois' growing prison population to reduce high recidivism rates of released Illinois offenders, providing men with evidenced based substance abuse treatment services, and using the Therapeutic Community approach to equip offenders to return to drug-free, crime-free lives upon release. In the Sheridan Correctional Center nation model program, treatment interventions and access to other services are coordinated from the outset. The substance abuse provider collaborates with a cadre of service providers, the Illinois Department of Corrections and Adult Parole to effect community reintegration of returning offenders and improve public safety. Recovering from addiction requires a wide range of social and psychological interventions to confront old behaviors and instill new ones. Sheridan Correctional Center applies clinical best practices and uses a modified therapeutic community model with cognitive self-change. Sheridan Correctional Center staff collaborates with other organizations to clinical reentry management services and community reintegration, including continuing care provided by community-based substance abuse treatment providers.
 
Sheridan Correctional Center is located approximately 70 miles west of Chicago in LaSalle County and was originally constructed in 1941 as a juvenile facility. On August 13, 1973, it was converted to an adult facility. Sheridan Correctional Center was closed from August 15, 2002, until it reopened on January 2, 2004. Sheridan Correctional Center consists of a total of 75 buildings, which comprise more than 600,000 square feet. There are 13 housing units and a 9-bed health care unit. The facility sits on 270 acres with 80 acres inside the perimeter fencing. The facility houses general population offenders.

Does anyone have any information about Sheridan's program. Do they get additional time off for addiction counseling? I heard it was 45 days for every 90? A minimum amount of program time?

Hi Mag....the last I heard, and it's not official, is that inmates participating in a drug program get 30 days additional good time for each 90 days spent in a program.  They are allowed to earn a total of 90 days additional good time for attending educational classes.  There may be some special consideration for Sheridan inmates.  Also, no violent offenders may receive this time or those who have been in the DOC on two other occasions.  It must their first or second bid in IDOC.  Maybe others will come along with more answers.

Hi Ya'll-

I just checked the doc website and my dad has been moved to Sheridan, I went to get the new address and it's not listed. Does anyone have the address?? I really want to send him some money now that I have some to send, but clearly I can't do that if I don't have the address. Can someone help me out? Thanks a bunch!

The address is just this:

Inmate's Name
Inmate's Number
Sheridan, Il 60551

You could also send it to him via Western Union, but it's costly if you're only sending in $50 or less.

You're welcome. It is strange that there's no PO box or anything. If you want to double check, give them a call.

My husband is possibly interested in transferring to Sheridan.   Anyone out there with loved ones here?  It's closer to home for our family, but not sure if this request will be an easy one.  I'm interested in hearing more about the environment (inside and out) for families.   We have two young children.

Well first Mom, he must go through R and C...that's where he'll remain until it's time to be assigned to a home institution.  Please read Ten Steps to Understanding the IDOC...it'll answer most of your initial questions.  If there's room at Sheridan and his counselor and the DOC think Sheridan would be the proper prison for him then he'll have to remain at Stateville until there's a bed available.  Not all inmates that are recommended to Sheridan by a judge get to go to Sheridan.  There are several other prisons that deal primarily with drug addiction also.  Southwestern is one.  Most of the other prisons have some type of drug abuse program also.  Sheridan is an intense treatment facility.  $100 is too much to send him while he's in R and C.  Stateville is notorious for transferring inmate accounts to other facilities at their leisure...sometimes four or more weeks after an inmate is reassigned.  Send him a smaller amount.  Incoming inmates cannot spend much money...only personal items are allowed and the State provides them if they have no money.  Register with VINE and you'll be notified as soon as your son is moved...then Quick Collect him some money and he'll have it immediately.  Go to Getting Started in the IDOC near the top of the homepage and read about VINE and most everything else you will need to know.  If you have more questions, and I'm sure you will...just give us a shout back....Welcome.

Dianne,  %$#@ to IPT. This is such a great forum to receive tons of information, support and comfort while your son is in IDOC. My fiance is in Sheridan, so if there is anything you need to know, please feel free to post or send me a personal message. Once my fiance was approved for Sheridan, there was not a waiting period for a bed to free up. Maybe the circumstances have changed now.  Anyway, please don't hesitate to ask me anything you need to know about Sheridan...I am on here daily.

Be strong, but when you feel you need to cry or simply vent, you'll find tons of support here!
