Franklin County Juvenile Drug Court
The Franklin County Juvenile Drug Court Program is an intense 12 month community based program which focuses on individual treatment for the juvenile participant and his/her parents or custodians.
Comments from former Drug Court Participants
- ”Being able to bond with great kids and their families who have been in my shoes and my parents’—it makes you feel less lonely when someone understands and doesn’t immediately judge you and push you away. I want to show people that you can change and just because you make mistakes doesn’t mean you’re no good anymore…..This experience is something I will never forget.”
- As my friend, I thought you (alcohol) were helping me out through hard times—I thought you were there for me when I needed it. But alcohol eventually turned from friend to foe, causing trouble and family strife. . . . I like myself better when I’m not drinking and I can stay out of trouble. I like myself better when I’m not drinking because my family wants me around more now.”
- “I was an aggressive and out of control teenager addicted to marijuana and alcohol…. I would like to thank my family, my friends, and most importantly the Drug Court team for never giving up on me and always pushing me to do my best”.
