Page Background


In July of 2000, the Mental Health Jail Project (MHJP) expanded to include the TAMAR (Trauma, Addictions, Mental Health and Recovery) Project. The TAMAR Project offers individual and trauma treatment to female inmates at the Ordnance Road Correctional Center (ORCC). Assessment and treatment services are provided by a licensed clinician.  Mental health case management services are also available for qualifying inmates who receive TAMAR services. The basic premise behind TAMAR is a trauma-informed treatment in combination with motivational counseling and thinking to help offenders break the severe trauma, chronic depression and re-offending cycle. TAMAR is funded in part through the Anne Arundel County Mental  Health Agency.



Initial screening occurs at admission to ORCC by medical services staff.  Both pretrial and sentenced women identified as possible victims of abuse or trauma are referred to licensed clinicians for assessment, individual and group therapy, and post-release case management services.  Facility staff may also refer those who may benefit or be in need of such services.  Participation in TAMAR is completely voluntary.
