A substance abuse program for inmates of the Stone County Detention Facility was initiated earlier this month.

Stone County Sheriff Lance Bonds says Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous representatives are offering programs, with planning underway to offer GED and other substance abuse programs by the end of the year.

Sheriff Bonds says these programs are open to male and female inmates who have a class one rating.

He says it is hoped these programs will help inmates with their addictions upon their release from the detention center.
