WARSAW — So what exactly is IRACS?

For starters, it stands for Integrated Reentry and Correctional Support, and it’s a new program established by the state and will soon be coming to Kosciusko County.

IRACS provides peer support teams who work daily within the jail to meet people where they are in their journey. The program provides recovery resources, individual and group peer support, access to treatment, and a variety of other initiatives.

The community can learn about a new inmate support program by attending a meeting at 5:30 Wednesday, June 21, at Palette, 2521 E. Center St. Warsaw.

The Kosciusko County IRACS Committee consists of leaders from the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office and Jail, Kosciusko County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, Kosciusko County Jail Chemical Addiction Program, Kosciusko Coalition on Drug Education, and Living In Transition Effectively. 

Support is needed from the community to help implement the program.

Everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will be available at the meeting.
