Each year, the Mecklenburg County ABC Board accepts applications for Community Health and Wellness Grants. The funds from these grants are utilized by nonprofit organizations to educate, prevent, treat, and study substance abuse disorders. Earlier this year, McLeod Center was awarded a grant of $100,000 by the Mecklenburg County ABC Board to provide education to indigent individuals within the criminal justice system. We are able to provide education to these individuals through our Cognitive Behavioral Intervention and Drug Education School programs.
Since June 2019, McLeod Center has already been able to bring 24 individuals through these programs with the assistance of the ABC Board grant.
