The Substance Treatment And Recidivism Reduction (STARR) program is an intensive four week in-jail substance use disorder treatment program.  STARR is administered by Criminal Justice Resource Center in conjunction with the Durham County Office of the Sheriff. STARR provides substance use disorder treatment services to the criminal offender in the Durham County Detention Facility.

The STARR program accepts volunteer and court-mandated men and women inmates into treatment for four weeks (STARR). Upon completion of STARR, an additional four-week program (STARR GRAD) is available. Treatment consists of addiction education, group therapy, and community resources education. Participants attend daily 12-step H&I recovery meetings. 

The STARR program’s contribution to National Recovery Month involves an art therapy project conducted with the July and August STARR and STARR GRAD classes.  The men and women of STARR make recovery collage posters that are displayed in the lobby of the Durham County Detention Facility through September.  The theme for Recovery Month 2016 is Join the Voices for Recovery: Our Families, Our Stories, Our Recovery!
