Four people began a new chapter in their lives Friday night as they graduated from Forsyth County Drug Court, joining nearly 250 others who have successfully completed the program during its 10-year history. The milestone anniversary was also celebrated during the event at the Lanier Technical College Forsyth Conference Center. Superior Court Jeffrey Bagley outlined the history of the program, which gives drug offenders an opportunity to complete an intensive, judicially-supervised regimen of treatment and case management rather than returning to jail.
