In 2008, a local Blade County pastor and concerned citizens wanted to implement a program that would provide treatment for those who struggle with drug abuse and encourage drug awareness and prevention. Southeastern Carolina Crossroads was opened to address addiction through a faith-based approach. Through a loving atmosphere, disciplined schedule, healthy climate, nutritious food, and relaxing recreation, the program strives to restore residents with a greater measure of physical, mental, and spiritual health and a more positive outlook on life.
The Carolina Crossroads 42-day residential program teaches drug awareness, prevention, and total abstinence. Program residents go through classroom teachings, personal soul care, homework, worship and devotional services, and daily work projects. In 2016, Carolina Crossroads served 163 men and graduated 104 from the program. While the program hopes to graduate more this year, Carolina Crossroads is in need of food and toiletry items to provide for the residents.
In partnership with WoodmenLife North Carolina Chapter 137, Carolina Crossroads hopes to raise $10,000 through RedBasket.org to purchase food, toiletries, and other necessities for the program residents. “We will be able to continue providing help and hope over addiction,” David Chestnut, Carolina Crossroads director.
