Although it sits on the same property, High Desert State Prison (HDSP) is independent of and smaller than its neighbor, California Correctional Center. HDSP is one of a few institutions specifically designed to house patients with disabilities who require specialized placement to accommodate accessibility issues. Located near the charming, family-friendly town of Susanville in the picturesque foothills of Northeastern California, this area is the ideal location for those who enjoy outdoor activities including hiking, skiing, camping, and fishing.
Here, in a collaborative, multidisciplinary setting our physicians and psychiatrists provide basic primary medical and mental health care that is anything but basic to a diverse patient population.
A wide variety of programs support HDSP’s mission to rehabilitate patients and prepare them for re-entry into society. Some of the courses offered here include career and vocational training, educational opportunities, and developmental and self-help programs.
Nestled among the serene foothills of beautiful Lassen County in Northeastern California, Susanville is an affordable, family-friendly community steeped in American pioneer history. This quaint town offers all of the amenities you and your family desire.
Formerly a prominent logging and mining town, Susanville is now known for its well-preserved rustic charm, four distinct seasons, and its close proximity to a host of outdoor activities.
Dine and shop in historic uptown; step back in time at a local museum; ski the slopes of Coppervale; hike the peaceful forests and breathtaking mountains of Lassen Volcanic National Park; explore the more than 34,000 square miles of pristine wilderness of the Ash Creek and Caribou wildlife areas; take a boat out on the blue waters of the many gem-like lakes in the region, including Eagle Lake and Lake Almanor; or bike the immaculate, 29 mile long Bizz Johnson trail from Susanville to nearby Westwood.
It is no wonder why Susanville was recognized by Outdoor Life magazine as being one of the top places to live in the United States.
Now, imagine living in this outdoor paradise.
