What is Criminon?

An International Network of Organizations

Criminon—meaning without crime—is an international, non-profit organization dedicated to criminal rehabilitation and reform. Criminon has been delivering courses and workshops to inmates, clients, and staff involved in the correctional system in the United States since 1989. Criminon accomplishes its work through services that improve self-respect, relationship skills and break destructive habits.

The purpose of the Criminon program is to help program participants achieve positive transformational cognitive changes in their attitudes about themselves, their environment, and their future. Participants gain constructive life skills they can use to improve their decision-making processes and reverse negative thought patterns and habits. The program also helps the participants take advantage of other reentry services such as housing, employment, education, healthcare, and job training programs.

Criminon services include basic life skills for those currently or formerly incarcerated, on probation or parole, enabling them to be ethical and contributing members of their communities and lead productive lives.

Criminon utilizes the highly effective secular works of author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard to help inmates gain a new level of ability to study, comprehend, and restore their integrity and pride.

“There is no person alive who cannot make a new beginning.”
– L. Ron Hubbard.
