The mission of DuQuoin Impact Program as a minimum-security facility is to provide for the protection of the public through the humane and secure incarceration of adult male individuals in custody based upon the foundation of legislative and judicial decisions. The institution's administration is committed toward instilling responsibility and mature decision making in its individuals in custody by providing extensive and high-quality educational programs, cognitive behavioral programs, work assignment opportunities, physical fitness, substance abuse programming and religious avenues. The administration and staff of the facility strive to maintain a clean and safe environment for the individual in custody population, encouraging a positive adjustment while acquiring employment skills and educational advancements that will lend to rehabilitation and reduced recidivism. Security measures are maintained to further ensure the safety of the community, individuals in custody, and staff. New reentry programming has been established to further encourage the successful transition of its individuals in custody as productive citizens within communities through structured programming.
The DuQuoin Structured Impact Program is a holistic program focusing on behavioral change and a positive self-image through a healthy lifestyle. Based on new legislation, eligible individuals who were sentenced after 1/1/2022 and approved by the sentencing court and accepted by the department, shall upon successful completion of the program requirements have their sentences reduced to time served between 12 to 18 months of active participation days. Upon successful completion, the individual in custody shall serve a term of mandatory supervised release.
Currently the DuQuoin IP program is housed and operated at the Murphysboro Life Skills Re-Entry Center.
