Paulding Co. drug court offers hope

In Pauld­ing County, there’s a new Drug Court, set up to help lower-level, non­vi­o­lent felony offend­ers with drug or alco­hol issues. The first court was in late Octo­ber, and its goal, said Judge Tiffany Beck­man, is for par­tic­i­pants to defeat their addic­tion and become con­tribut­ing mem­bers of soci­ety. The three phase pro­gram focuses on keep­ing par­tic­i­pants clean with daily drug test­ing, then sup­port meet­ings and finally help­ing them obtain employment.
