Graduation day in Linn county

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- It was a happy day for 5 people in Linn county, who have been working hard for months to overcome their drug problems.

It's the first graduating class of the Linn county Drug Treatment Court program.  The service began in fall last year.  Since then, the graduates have undergone intensely supervised probation to work out their addictions.

The Linn county court says if the program did not exist, these clients would have been sent to prison instead.
