The facility’s New Directions Alternative Incarceration Addictions Program (AIP) is a 178-bed treatment program for qualifying inmates. Inmates in this program are assigned to a highly regimented program which includes a daily routine of 14-16 hours of treatment, education, and transition classes in conjunction with institution and/or community-based work.

Powder River is located in rural Baker City in Eastern Oregon .  The facility, a 278 bed minimum-security institution was opened in 1989 and serves the Department’s mission by focusing its correctional program efforts on inmates who have alcohol and drug treatment needs.
Inmates in this program provide a variety of work related services to the communities in Baker and surrounding counties. One of the primary reasons for this work is to reduce the costs of government, particularly to rural governments, who could not successfully complete needed work projects by other means.  Examples of value-added work accomplished by inmate work crews include:
