Some people trying to do the right thing were honored Thursday after successfully completing drug court in Kanawha County.
Five participants graduated from the 12-month program Thursday. A ceremony was held at the Kanawha County Courthouse. Drug court is a diversion program where individuals charged with various crimes fueled by alcohol and drug addiction can participate in a rehabilitation program with judicial oversight to assist them in overcoming their addiction.
Thirty-eight people have graduated from drug court since the program started in July 2009.
