S.C. prison for women will treat substance abuse with digital therapy

The South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC) is planning to offer a digital tracking system in their prisons to support addiction therapy for inmates, especially for women.


"We are excited to begin this cutting-edge treatment for our female inmates who suffer from addiction," said SCDC Director Bryan Stirling.


The program is funded by the South Carolina Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services and it is the first of its kind in a U.S. prison. The tracking software is FDA-authorized. It is a 90-day treatment intended to increase abstinence and boost participation in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
