Inmates Graduate from Alcohol and Drug Treatment Program


A total of 15 inmates at the Lexington County Detention Center graduated at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 26 from an eight-week alcohol and drug treatment program that LRADAC/The Behavioral Health Center of the Midlands administers at the Detention Center.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department conducted a graduation ceremony for the 15 inmates at a courtroom that is adjacent to the front entrance of the Detention Center at the Lexington County James R. Metts Law Enforcement Complex, 521 Gibson Road, Lexington.

During the LRADAC program, a clinical addictions counselor met for one hour once per week with the 15 inmates at the Detention Center, Metts said. The alcohol and drug treatment program is designed to help inmates confront and conquer addictive, compulsive behaviors that could lead them to commit additional crimes after they are released from the Detention Center.

Inmates who participate in the alcohol and drug treatment program learn skills that will help them avoid situations in which their sobriety could be compromised after they are released from the Detention Center, Metts said. They also receive individual relapse prevention plans that will help them engage in healthy activities that do not include the use of alcohol or drugs.

Metts said the following 15 inmates successfully completed the alcohol and drug treatment program while being housed at the Detention Center: Davey Eugene Seagroves, Frederick Leon Kinard, Mark Allen Busby, II, Craig Stevens, Michael Wayne Cox, Stanley Partman, Raul Aleman Perez, Edmond Levy, Jr., Andre Jamel Cummings, Charles Jacob Frick, Edward Weston, Jared William McCullough, Thomas Walker Keels, Jr., Freddie Lee Mealing, Jr., and Albert Wallace.

Two inmates at the Detention Center also graduated on Tuesday from a six-week culinary arts training class that the inmates successfully completed while being housed at the Detention Center, Metts said. The following inmates completed the training class: Thomas Allen Spires, Jr., and Chad Justin Crawford.

Trinity Services Group, Inc., which contracts with Lexington County government to provide meals for inmates at the Detention Center, conducted the culinary arts training class, Metts said. The goal of the culinary arts training class is to educate inmates in order to provide them with food preparation skills that they can use to find jobs in the food service industry after they are released from the Detention Center.

Inmates who participated in the culinary arts training class met daily for 30 minutes with Eva Barnett, who supervises food service at the Detention Center, Metts said. Barnett provided inmates with hands-on instruction concerning cleaning and sanitation, food safety, preparation of cold food and hot food, portion control, food inventory and food ordering.
