KOSCIUSKO — The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department has announced a new program starting at the Kosciusko County Jail. A program being coordinated by A Bridge to Hope was presented to the Kosciusko County Jail staff on Tuesday, May 1, for a trial deployment in the jail in mid-May.
The program Smart Recovery would be presented weekly to inmates at the Kosciusko County Jail. Smart Recovery is a program that the Sheriff’s Department was hoping to implement with the JCAP program in the near future and A Bridge to Hope is proposing starting the program initially on a volunteer basis to both male and female inmates in the jail. A Bridge to Hope currently has one certified facilitator for the program and is working on placing a second individual to present the program
Once JCAP is up and running, Smart Recovery will be a program offered through JCAP as well. Smart Recovery is a science based alternative to AA and NA, which will still be offered in the Kosciusko County Jail.
