Jackson Co. Recognizes Drug Court Grads

MEDFORD, Ore. — Drug addicts who chose to turn their lives around were recognized by the Jackson County courts on Thursday.

Nine people successfully graduated from adult drug court. This afternoon, the graduates all told their stories.

Many say they were on the brink of losing their friends and family because of their addiction, but through drug court they were motivated to stay clean and sober.

“It’s an accumulation of many days and many cases of months and months of hard work of these participants. They’ve had to overcome tremendous disadvantages,” said Jackson County Judge Patricia Crain.

To graduate drug court, one of the several requirements is to give back through a community project.
