I am the discharge planner at the Manatee Co. jail. I am interested in any of your programs that may benefit an inmate upon release.

Would you please send me info?

Resources for newly released inmates
by: Debbie Wicker

Hello,

There are quite a few resources I would recommend many of them religious based organizations. Churches often have programs for addiction recovery called Celebrate Recovery. Here is a local program and contact information for you to give to the newly released inmates:

Bayside Community Church
15800 SR 64 East, Bradenton, FL 34212
941-718-4845
Britt Strickland & Tricia Sadler
Friday 7:00 pm

If they go to this program they should find many of the resources they're looking for.

Also, Teen Challenge is a excellent inpatient program that is free once accepted. It helps teens and young adults recover from addiction. There are different centers in SW Florida but here is the information for the Adult Male:


Tallahassee Teen Challenge
Adult Center (Male) - Induction/Training
4141 Apalachee Pkwy
Tallahassee, Florida 32311
850-385-8336
teenchallenge.cc
info.tallahassee@teenchallenge.cc

AA, NA and Ca also have daily meetings in your area and are an excellent way to get connected back into the community and find out what resources are available.

Hope that helps,

Debbie
