The Recovery on the Inside Program began in 2018 when the Watauga County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) undertook a research project to determine the biggest causes of recidivism in Watauga County and to determine what they could do as law enforcement to connect their incarcerated population to the resources needed in order to be successful and to stay out of jail.

WCSO determined that the biggest commonalities among those who cycled through incarceration were:

  • Substance use

  • Childhood traumatic events and adversity

  • Unstable housing

  • Mental health needs
