Northeast Correctional Complex (NECX) is a time-building prison with a close custody designation. The prison also houses offenders of other custody levels. Three hundred offenders are located at the minimum annex site in Johnson County, and another 180 offenders, who are within ten years of their eligible release date, are housed in Carter County.

NECX offers intensive substance use and anger management counseling programs. Both sites operate extensive community service programs, which provide thousands of hours of skilled and unskilled labor to state and local government, as well as non-profit agencies in East Tennessee.

The prison, in coordination with TRICOR, operates one industry. Shaw Industries, a hardwood flooring company, operates through the private section of the TRICOR Prison Industry Enhancement Certification Program (PIE).

NECX offenders may attend Adult Basic Education classes or one of six vocational programs. Those who do not have a high school diploma are able to earn a GED certificate. In addition, NECX has mandatory Career Management for Success and Release for Success programs for those nearing release.
