Piedmont Regional Jail (PRJ) Authority held its third graduation ceremony of the evidence-based re-entry program Successful Living on April 21.

In partnership with Crossroads Community Service Board, the 12-week evidence-based re-entry program helps male and female offenders to learn strategies to overcome barriers that lead to substance abuse and managing triggers. The Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program is a critical component. The Piedmont Regional Jail Authority encourages offenders to participate in re-entry and educational programs offered at the facility to aid in becoming functional law abiding citizens upon release.

The program is facilitated by George Davis, a licensed counselor at Crossroads Community Service Board. The guest speaker was Rickie Bolden who gave an exceptional speech to encourage offenders to keep a positive mindset for their future.
