JEFFERSON COUNTY, TEXAS

A state-of-the-art mental health care program.


In her first term in office, Sheriff Zena Stephens made a commitment to the Jefferson County community that she would increase the quality of care and raise the standard in mental health coverage for their inmate population who suffer from mental health, as well as alcohol and substance abuse disorders. The county became CorrHealth’s first site located in Texas as they entered into their contractual agreement in 2018. By working closely with the county, CorrHealth has established 24/7 mental health care and state-of-the-art detox programs and services to meet the specific needs of their inmate population.


In a recent surprise jail inspection from the Texas Commission on Jail Standards, our inspector stated, While most of the jails around the state are providing adequate levels of care, what CorrHealth is doing is right. Their program is spectacular and one the rest of the state should be following.
