S.H.A.R.P. & W.E.A.R. PROGRAMS

S.H.A.R.P

The Sheriff’s Heroin Addiction Recovery Program (S.H.A.R.P.) is an initiative for qualifying male inmates within the Pitt County, North Carolina Detention Center who volunteer for the program, seeking help. This initiative was created by Sheriff Paula Dance to assist those with substance use disorder in overcoming their addictions, changing their thought processes, and improving their holistic lifestyle. The S.H.A.R.P. initiative allows licensed therapists, counselors, and peer support specialists to work with selected individuals who acknowledge their need for assistance in ending their substance use cycle. These individuals are also eligible for Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT). This process has been empirically proven to increase the odds of success upon their release from custody and the criminal justice system. Sheriff Dance is committed to offering effective solutions, a seamless community reentry, and referrals within an aftercare partnership for those struggling with addiction. The process of recovery can begin at the moment of incarceration but should not have to stop the day they walk out the door of the Detention Center back, into the same temptations.

W.E.A.R.

The Women's Empowerment And Recovery (W.E.A.R.) Program is designed to empower incarcerated women by promoting positive thoughts and behaviors, as well as addressing substance use issues. W.E.A.R. offers treatment for substance use disorders, life skills training, education, and positive thinking reinforcement. W.E.A.R. also utilizes licensed therapists, counselors, and peer support specialists to assist participants in recovery and general life-skills necessary to improve their lives upon release from the criminal justice system. W.E.A.R. participants may also be eligible for Medicated Assisted Treatment (M.A.T.).  Sheriff Dance is committed to offering effective solutions, a seamless community reentry, and referrals within an aftercare partnership for those struggling with addiction. The process of recovery can begin at the moment of incarceration but should not have to stop the day they walk out of the Detention Center, back into the same temptations that brought them in previously.
