The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners gave the go-ahead Thursday for a pilot program to reduce the county jail population by helping inmates with addictions to opioids, heroin and alcohol.

The commissioners unanimously approved a $70,000 contract between Forsyth County and Insight Human Services Inc. for Insight to provide a program coordinator for the District Attorney’s Treatment Alternatives program, known as DATA.

The contract is for the first year of the pilot program.

All across the country, those who struggle from mental health and drug addictions fill jail cells and detention centers, addressing a symptom rather than the root cause of the problem.

Cabarrus County has joined a national initiative to reverse the trend. Stepping Up, which the county implemented at the detention center in January, seeks to meet those convicted or accused of crimes where they’re at, connecting them with resources for treatment and recovery.
