The Women's Therapeutic Residential Center (WTRC) is a time building prison with a mission to provide a healthy, safe and secure environment within which gender-responsive treatment, educational services, career development and reentry services focus on changing criminal behavior.  The facility is operated at the West Tennessee State Penitentiary, Site 1.  WTRC is a modified women's therapeutic residential community behavioral model program that serves female offenders.  It is a highly structured environment where peer interaction mediated through a variety of group processes is emphasized as the medium for change.
