The flagship program at the Community Transition Center
is the Matrix House Substance Abuse Treatment program. This is a 120-day in-house drug treatment program, which independent evaluation has praised for effectiveness in overcoming issues of addiction and abuse. River Region Human Services is contracted to run this program in coordination with the Sheriff’s Office
. The evidence-based "Therapeutic Community" approach is used, which teaches and encourages persons with substance abuse issues to begin their road to sobriety and/or recovery. The in-house program is followed upon release from incarceration by a year of aftercare through River Region in the community. Many offenders have successfully completed this program, allowing them to once again be contributing and productive members of their family and our community.
More information about the Matrix House is available in the Sheriff's Office Department of Corrections 2012 Annual Report to the Community
