Recognizing the need for addiction treatment services within the Charleston County Detention Center, the Persons Incarcerated Entering Recovery (PIER) program was developed in 1996 as a joint effort between the Detention Center, Bond Court, and Charleston Center with funding largely provided by the Charleston County Sherriff's Office and Charleston County Council.
PIER's mission is to provide evidenced-based alcohol and other drug treatment to inmates of the Charleston County Detention Center. The program includes a 64-bed male treatment unit solely dedicated to addressing the needs of people suffering with addiction to alcohol and/or other drugs. Services for female inmates are also available.
Although it may vary by individual, patients will be involved in treatment for an average of 12 weeks. Follow-up outpatient treatment services are available at Charleston Center at no additional cost.
