The Hughes Re-Entry Center

What is Re-Entry?
The Counseling Center has developed Re-Entry Services that will provide a continuum care of comprehensive AOD/MH services along with health care, technical training, employment services, transitional living, and court services all to address the re-entry barriers for those individuals involved in the justice system. 

The Hughes Re-Entry Center will be partnering together with Southeastern Ohio Legal Services, Scioto County Career and Technical Center, and Scioto County Aspire,  to provide program options that not only address individual substance abuse, but also their criminogenic, vocational, and educational needs.
