MDOC has developed four distinct types of specialized mental health units to work with inmates diagnosed with mental illness and personality disorders: STP, BMU, the Intensive Treatment Unit (ITU) and residential treatment units (RTUs).
These traditions, which may be carried into the residential treatment unit or outpatient therapy office, may play into the denial of persons with eating disorders.
These include screening and referral; crisis beds, with an average stay of less than 10 days; long-term residential treatment units called intermediate care programs; outpatient treatment, which usually includes medication and/or psychotherapy, for those living in the general population; and pre-discharge planning services for inmates about to be released or paroled.
