Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Graduation
The Atlantic County Justice Facility will host a graduation ceremony on March 22 to recognize 23 inmates who have successfully completed a 60-day comprehensive substance abuse treatment program.
In 2011 the justice facility received an $11,000 state grant to provide a modified therapeutic community program for incarcerated men. Participants receive professional counseling and a medication regiment tailored to combat chemical addiction and sustain recovery. The program also promotes employment services to increase the likelihood of a successful transition into the community upon their release from jail. Twenty-seven individuals completed the program last year.
