NEW ORLEANS - 07-09-2021

A significant number of arrestees have substance abuse and drug addictions. Inmates who participate in Narcotics Anonymous sessions held at the Orleans Justice Center have been invited to a banquet -- virtually.

At 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 10, 2021, these inmates will join via Zoom a banquet hosted by the New Orleans Area Chapter of Narcotics Anonymous (NA) which is holding its annual convention at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel. The convention ends Sunday, July 11.

During the hour-long Zoom, an inmate in the NA group at OJC will read a short passage that highlights the challenges associated with addiction. As part of the occasion, the NA inmates will be served a special meal of pizza and soft drinks.

Sheriff Marlin Gusman thanks the New Orleans Area Chapter of Narcotics Anonymous for including the Orleans Justice Center in NA's annual convention and Gregory W. Carroll, OPSO director of programs, with additional support from case managers and mental health professionals at OJC for organizing our participation.
