The 11-story Correctional Institution is on a 52-acre site. Administrative offices are in a building that sits at the base of the six-story offender residential tower. Each floor has two levels and is divided into two wings. In each wing are three cellblocks, each designed to hold 16 offenders. There are 48 cells used for administrative and disciplinary segregation.
The Facility is a point of entry into the prison system for male felons ages 22 and older from western North Carolina who are sentenced to less than 10 years in prison. Upon arrival, offenders undergo a series of diagnostic evaluations that will determine future prison assignments. Many offenders are at the Facility with short stays because they are being processed into the prison system or receive medical or dental services.
The prison has a 14-bed infirmary and outpatient medical facility with capabilities for x-ray, EKG, lab, IV therapy and minor surgical operations. A three-chair dental clinic is staffed on a full-time basis.
Offenders may participate in the New Direction substance abuse treatment program. New Direction provides intensive inpatient treatment in a fast-moving 28-day treatment cycle with lectures, films, educational and therapy groups, as well as individual counseling. Offenders work with professional staff and peer counselors. New Direction relies heavily on the principles of Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous with group meetings available in the evenings.
Correction Enterprises operates a reupholstery plant at Piedmont. Other offenders may work as maintenance or kitchen help.
The institution provides vocational classes in woodworking, auto mechanics and auto body repair. A literacy computer lab, adult education classes and a course to prepare for the GED are available.
