The first participant in the Mono County Drug Court Program enrolled into the program on July 21, 2016. This participant experienced the expected difficulties that many face while trying to maintain a sober life, completing an intensive program, and dealing with the day to day problems and tasks we all face. On July 19, 2017, he had the courage to go before the Mono County Board of Supervisors and talked about his journey through Drug Court. He was approximately 75% of the way through the program when the presentation occurred. On January 25, 2017, he graduated from the program with 363 days clean from drugs and alcohol. Instead of continuing the “revolving door” process of going in and out of the custody, he now has the tools to remain clean and sober, be a contributing community member, good father, and good husband.
