As heroin and other drug use continues to reach epidemic levels in Brunswick County, the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office is trying hard to combat the problem by forming partnerships with community organizations to help addicts get treatment. Our own Anchor Initiative program was started in 2017 and is available for individuals with addictions. Individuals can contact the Sheriff’s Office at 910-363-7880 through self-referral, family or friend referral or officer interaction and will be put in immediate contact with an Anchor Initiative coordinator, who will respond and do an assessment.

The North Carolina Drug Treatment Courts (DTC) were established by statute in 1995 to enhance and monitor the delivery of treatment services to chemically dependent adult offenders while holding those offenders rigorously accountable for complying with their court-ordered treatment plans. In 2001, the General Assembly formally authorized expansion of the DTCs to include substance abusing juvenile offenders and chemically dependent parents of neglected or abused children.
The overall goal of the DTC is to significantly break the cycle of addiction that gives rise to repeated law-breaking episodes. By enhancing the likelihood that the drug-driven offender will remain drug and crime free and socially responsible, the DTC seeks to reduce justice system, health system, and other societal costs associated with continuing drug use and criminal involvement.
