Community-based residential

The Alcoholism and Chemical Dependency Programs has two community-based residential treatment facilities, DART Cherry and Black Mountain Substance Abuse Treatment Center for Women.

DART Cherry is a community-based residential treatment facility located in Goldsboro that provides substance abuse treatment services to male offenders who are on probation and parole and under the supervision of Community Corrections.  DART-Cherry offers a 90-day therapeutic community program

Black Mountain Substance Abuse Treatment Center for Women is a community-based residential facility located in Black Mountain that provides substance abuse treatment services to female offenders who are on probation and parole and under the supervision of Community Corrections.  Black Mountain offers a 90-day treatment program.

Judges may order participation in a community-based residential treatment program as a condition of probation or the Post-Release Supervision and Parole Commission may order participation as a condition of parole/Post Release. General Statute 15A-1343(b)(3) mandates that participation of probationers in a residential program must be based on a screening and assessment that indicate chemical dependency. Representatives from Treatment Accountability for Safer Communities complete the assessment in the community to determine the offender's eligibility for a community-based program.

Upon completion of a community-based program, the offender's counselor develops a complete aftercare plan. The offender returns home and remains under the supervision of his probation/parole officer to ensure continued treatment follow-up in the community and the completion of his/her aftercare plan.

Community-based facilities do not have a dedicated detoxification unit.  Offenders requiring detoxification are not appropriate for assignment to a community-based facility.
