-A A +A

Anderson County Drug Court recently celebrated the April 12 graduation of Anderson County residents Josh Case and Josh Williams from the Drug Court program.
Drug Court, which serves Anderson, Shelby and Spencer counties, was established by Chief Circuit Judge Charles Hickman in 2007.
The program’s mission statement is “to empower our participants to live substance-free lives by promoting positive change in criminal and addictive behaviors that lead to personal responsibility and productive citizenship.”
“All we do is give our participants the tools to carry out that mission statement,” Hickman, the guest speaker at the graduation ceremony, said. “I think they can tell you they have been empowered by our program.”
Graduates of the Drug Court program are required to complete four phases of the program for a 15-18 month commitment, including 12 months of active participation and community service projects.
Those interested in volunteering with the Drug Court program can contact the steering committee at First Christian Church in Lawrenceburg.
