“When I walked into drug court there was a buzz in the room.
So many people full of hope.”


We acknowledge the hard work and of these participants who have successfully completed the Drug Court program.

Teresa, Graduate
“The day I got busted I lost
everything, Drug Court
gave it all back to me.”

Darin, Graduate
"Drug Court changed my
thinking and gave me
good solid friends."

Sherman, Graduate
“Going into a long-term treatment facility changed my life, though I would not have gone on my own. Thank you Drug Court.”

Austin, Graduate
“I do deserve recovery, everyone
in Drug Court deserves recovery.
I’m finally proud of myself.”

Blair, Graduate
“Just seeing Drug Court once I
knew it was something I could do.”

Christopher, Graduate
 “As Albert Einstein once said
‘You can’t solve a problem with the kind of thinking that got you into it.’
I have finally accepted that I cannot choose the cards I am dealt, but I can choose how to play them.”


Jason, Graduate
“It [Drug Court] gave me back
focus and clarity.”

Lance, Graduate
“Drug Court gave me the opportunity to learn what to do about it [addiction]. Today I’m glad to be alive.”

you’ve just seen why I do it.”
