Drug Courts are designed to take a public health approach to help defendants break the cycle of addiction and stay out of jail.  They include a substance abuse program supervised by a judge.  Drug courts currently operate in 113 Kentucky Counties and to graduate from the program is a huge accomplishment as it can take upwards of 3 years to complete the process.  Sadly some participants experience setbacks along the way; with tragic consequences.  WUKY’s Alan Lytle introduces us to a woman who has used the pain of personal loss to help others on their path to healing and wholeness.
