San Quentin Federal Prison

San Quentin, California

In the mid 1970s the AH support group in San Quentin was founded by Dr. Gerald Jampolsky to offer psycho-social/spiritual tools for prisoners both long-term as well as for those anticipating their release. This large support group, which continues to this day, is the longest running AH group in the world and remains a model for many other facilities.

Penal de Puente Grande (Prison)

Guadalajara, Mexico

CECURA Guadalajara has innovated Attitudinal Healing to create a 100-day program for addicted inmates in the Puente Grande Prison in Guadalajara, one of the largest Federal prisons in Mexico. The program is a combination of Attitudinal Healing, Pastoral Counseling, and Alcoholics Anonymous. Over the past nine years, about 1,700 inmates have successfully completed the program, most of whom were working towards release into private life, where groups were also available to them.

This program is a model for other prisons with a sobriety success rate of approximately 70%, which is significantly higher than most known programs.
