18 people are facing a variety of misdemeanor and felony charges graduated from drug court today at the Coffee County courthouse.
It's a 2nd chance and an alternative to jail.
The class can range from a year to a year-and-a-half and the District Attorney's office screens who is eligible.
If successfully completed, criminal charges are dismissed.
"I’ve been doing this for 45-years, either as an Assistant DA, Prosecutor or Judge, I can honestly say this is the most effective way to change people's lives around so they won't go back to the use of drugs," said Coffee Co. Drug Court Judge, Robert Barr.
A drug court spokesman says it provides rehabilitation that includes supervision and responsibility.
