LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A rehab program at the Kentucky Department of Corrections is helping inmates clean up their lives.

WHAS-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1RKj9SY ) that the program called “Enough is Enough” helps addicts detox, as well as stay clean.

Ken Wright is the program’s director and one of its teachers. He says part of the discussion about relapse education and relapse prevention involves “identifying triggers.”

Participant Cynthia Weddell says the program also teaches inmates how to be responsible once they get out, like taking care of their bills instead of buying drugs.

Officials say the department also has a similar program for males.
