For many in our community, the cycle of addiction, crime, and incarceration appears hopeless. Meridian helps individuals in Haywood and Jackson Counties turn the crisis of incarceration into fuel for recovery. Through specialized assessments, trained clinicians help individuals understand their addictions and the patterns that keep them stuck in the criminal justice system. Weekly counseling/educational groups use evidence-based practices including enhancing motivation, relapse prevention planning, developing safe coping skills, and changing destructive thought patterns. Most importantly, the jail program provides a bridge to ongoing community services that support long-term recovery.
