The ultimate goal of the Juvenile Drug Court program is for the participant to be a productive family member and citizen within the community by attending school, following home guidelines, making good grades, and abstaining from alcohol and drug use.
On April 17, three participants in this program achieved this goal by graduating from the program.
This fiscal year, 17 juvenile probationers have participated in this program with 12 of those successfully graduating.
Shannon Doan, coordinator of Bradley County Juvenile Drug Court, said it is a privilege to be a part of such a wonderful program.
“We take great pride in the success of our participants and the relationships we build with them. Making a lasting impact in the lives of our youth is our highest priority,” Doan said.
“This program is extremely beneficial to our community. We continuously look for ways to enhance our program to reach even greater success,” stated Doan.
Doan attributes the success to the staff and community supporters who are invested in the lives of the participants and are driven to help each of the participants reach their highest potential.
