Currently there are 28 participants in the program.

Lawrence Superior Court II Judge William Sleva and his team oversees and administers Drug Court, a program which offers those who have committed crimes with drugs and or alcohol - a second chance.

The program is an intensive attempt to rehabilitate and reform offenders who have problems with addiction.

Judge Sleva described the program with one word - redemption.

Today, five graduated the program: Michael Poveda, Matthew Guthrie, Joel A. Beasley, Amy J. Canfield and Robert D. Holmes.

"These five participants have worked very hard during their time in the Problem Solving Court II to turn their lives around," Judge Sleva says. "They have established employment, enrolled in higher education, assumed family responsibilities and actively participated in recovery programs. They display attitudes thea make them successful role models for other participants and members of the community."

All five shared their struggles with drugs or alcohol and praised the drug court staff for helping them turning their lives around.
