Jackson County Drug Court, Scottsboro Alabama
Our Drug Court works.
We are fighting the problem by helping people change their lives in a good way and getting their lives back. We help them get jobs, establish a clean living environment, become tax paying law-abiding citizens, get their drivers licenses, regain visitation and/or custody of their children and most importantly teach them how to live a happy and healthy drug free life.
Family members of our Drug Court participants have come to us and said:
- “You helped my child learn responsibility”
- “I have my child back.”
- “I don’t have to worry anymore when he comes to my house.”
- “This is the person she used to be before drugs.”
- “I never thought I’d see him clean again.”
- “I trust him again.”
- “You saved her life; I thought she would die before me.”
- “I don’t have to worry anymore.”
- “I am so proud of my daughter.”
Judge Graham and Drug Court participants were honored to have a role in www.WhitmanAlabama.com project’s “love poem to Alabama” by reading Verse 37 of Walt Whitman’s classic poem, “Song of Myself.” The project asks Alabamians from across our state to read one of the verses of the 150 year old poem. Watch the video of our part of the project.
