Jeremy Hale, D.C. Program Supervisor, sent the news that the Adair County Drug Court held a graduation event Thursday evening, June 29, 2017, at the Adair County Judicial Center in Columbia, KY to celebrate three who have completed the program. A meal and refreshments were provided for the three graduates and their guests.


Information on the State of Kentucky website, Ky.gov, says that instead of spending time in jail, eligible participants complete a substance abuse program supervised by a judge resulting in Drug Court graduates being more likely to return to productive lives.

Kentucky Drug Court was created in 1996 to help those who have entered the criminal justice system as a result of drug use or drug-related criminal activity and choose to achieve and maintain recovery. Drug Court combines close court supervision and treatment with other services to intervene and break the cycle of substance abuse, addiction and crime.

The program uses a team approach requiring collaboration among judges, Specialty Court staff, prosecutors, defense counsel, treatment professionals, law enforcement officers and other community agencies. These professionals help addicted individuals regain control of their lives through judicial oversight, intensive supervision and monitoring, participation in substance abuse treatment sessions and self-help groups, frequent and random urine screens, and referrals to community service agencies and other services.
