Alex City Community Based Facility and Community Work Center opened in September 1974. The Center has on-going community work services offered to the Tallapoosa County Commission such as the community's Adopt-A-Mile program which is open to inmate’s participation.
The Center also has a full time Drug Treatment Counselor who coordinates AA and NA classes to assist inmates recovering from substance abuse. Religious services are provided weekly by various denominational volunteers.
The Center has achieved an excellent working relationship with Alex City employers and the community. Employment of work release participants typically has remained at 100%. The Alex City Community Work Center is classified as a minimum custody facility.
