Forsyth County Drug Court to Hold Celebration for Program Graduates, 20th Anniversary

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Forsyth County Drug Court is holding a graduation ceremony for its participants in the Commissioners Meeting Room at the Forsyth County Administration Building (110 E. Main Street, Suite 220) at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 29.

Chief Justice Michael P. Boggs, who served as a member of the Judicial Council of Georgia’s Standing Committee on Accountability, will be featured as a guest speaker at the event.

“Twenty years ago, we took in our first participant in the Forsyth County Drug Court, embarking on a mission to save lives. The unwavering dedication of our Drug Court staff has been pivotal in transforming the lives of those battling addiction,” said Chief Judge Jeffrey Bagley. “As we mark this 20-year milestone, it is heartening to reflect on the countless individuals who have reclaimed their lives through our program. The graduation of eight more participants from our rigorous two-year program is a testament to this life-saving work driven by hope, support and a strong sense of community.”

Since the program’s inception in 2004, the Forsyth County Drug Court has seen 450 graduates. The program is a minimum of 24 months and consists of five phases, encompassing vocational, educational and psychological components while providing substance abuse treatment.

The Forsyth County Drug Court aims to improve the quality of life and reduce recidivism for participants in the program. The program strives to give graduates a solid foundation to build upon in order to become productive members of our society.

The Forsyth County Drug Court is located at 425 Tribble Gap Road. For more information about the office, call (678) 455-4780 or visit the Drug Court’s webpage.
