because without the tools
you have given me, I wouldn't be
here today.  Also thank you to
my family for their never ending support and love."

Jeff P., Graduate
"The Drug Court Team has
showed me the tools I need
to survive.  Before I only knew
the outside world, I didn't
know myself.  Today I have
turned that leaf over, and for
that I thank you."

a part of this program.  And
thank you Drug Court team,

for never giving up on me, even
when I gave up on myself."

Thank you to my girl and everyone else who helped me along the way."

Jeff H., Graduate
"Thank you to everyone in this
room, and especially the Drug
Court Team for giving me the
tools to live life right.  Today I
can be trusted and I can be
there for my son."

Swain, Graduate
"When I was using before, I
wanted help but I didn't know
how to get it.  Drug Court came
along and saved my life and for
me it wasn't just a get out of
jail free card.  I've learned
to love myself again."

Van, Graduate
"Thanks to the team and in-patient program.  I can't say enough about this program, it's saved my life.  Thank you very much."

Monte, Graduate
"Thanks to the Drug Court Team,
you guys go way beyond just
working for a paycheck.  You
really care about all of
us and it shows."

Mark, Graduate
"Drug Court has helped me pave
a new path for my life.  Thank
you family for standing beside me
and always supporting me."

sticking by me and supporting me.”

once controlled your lives. ”
