The Chesterfield County Jail has never housed females before, but after the jail ran a successful and popular opioid program, the jail began to offer the same program for women. The program is called HARP for Heroin Addiction Recovery Program and centers on daily peer counseling led by recovering addicts from the McShin Foundation.
One of the women at the Chesterfield County Jail crosses her feet while listening to a facilitated session on Oct. 19, 2016. The women are part of an opioid program in the jail.
