These programs aid the inmates upon their release. Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous support groups are also represented. Approximately 50 inmates participate in the work release program. which allows them to be employed by private-sector employers to begin their readjustment to the community and earn a wage that can be used to support their children and families, as well as to pay restitution.
