Our view: McHenry County Drug Court a big success
While drug addiction is a lifelong struggle, a one-year sober anniversary for an addict is a milestone of significance.
Today marks a milestone in the local battle against drug addiction as McHenry County’s Drug Court completes its first year in existence. So far, 41 repeat drug offenders have gone through the program.
The participants aren’t just kids who made a mistake where a lesson could be learned by paying a fine, a term of supervision or probation, or even a short jail sentence. These are individuals who have had several run-ins with law enforcement for one reason: drug abuse. Most of the offenders report heroin addiction.
