Drug-Free Delta County would like to invite the community to share in our celebration of National Drug Court Month on Thursday, May 16, at 4 p.m. in Judge Sandra Miller's courtroom in the Delta County Courthouse. We hope you'll enjoy seeing adult treatment court in action and stay after to share in refreshments to support our drug court clients, their families, our treatment court team and volunteers.
We will be honoring recent drug court graduates.
Delta County's drug courts represent a proven budget solution for our area. Through the efforts of Judge Sandra Miller, Judge Charles Greenacre, tireless staff and board, and countless volunteers, our drug courts are truly making a difference, from reducing drug use and recidivism, to reuniting families and making our community safer.
Drug Courts are our nation's most effective strategy at reducing recidivism among seriously drug addicted, nonviolent offenders with long criminal histories. Nationally, 75% of individuals who complete drug court are not re-arrested. Drug courts save up to $13,000 for every individual they serve and return as much as $27 for every $1 invested. Thus we join 2,700 other drug courts nationwide in celebrating National Drug Court Month, focusing on the theme: "Drug Courts: A Proven Budget Solution."
We would love to have each and every one of you in Delta County share in our celebration! Refreshments will be served.
