The Sheriff's Heroin Addiction Recovery Program, founded by Sheriff Paula S. Dance is committed to offering comprehensive services, a seamless community reentry, and referrals for aftercare for those struggling with addiction. Services will begin at the moment of incarceration but should not have to stop the day they walk out the door of the Detention Center. Sheriff Dance is leading a progressive and effective office that utilizes partnership, problem-solving, and proactive public service efforts to achieve results for Pitt County citizens in need.
The Women's Empowerment and Recovery program, founded by Sheriff Paula S. Dance focuses on cognitive behavior and person centered therapy. Program facilitators work with the participants to become more self-aware and aware of the world itself. W.E.A.R. will also educate the participants on vital life skills such as effective parenting, rational thinking, healthy thinking, and effective communication. Other topics covered include how to effectively manage money, illicit substance prevention, and other important skills to assist in the participants success in society.
