MANSFIELD, OH - Thirteen participants graduated from the Richland County Drug Court treatment program on Thursday afternoon after undergoing months of treatment and rehabilitation. The program has been in action for 20 years and has seen a success rate of over 80% in the past few years.

"All that hard work... it's about an 18-month minimum program to get through it," said Judge Brent Robinson, one of the program's overseers. "Once the people graduate, many of them no longer have an arrest record. Their records get sealed, they have no conviction record, and they are now clean, sober, and productive people. So it's a very enjoyable event for us."

The program is overseen by Judge Brent Robinson and Judge Phillip Naumoff, with help from various treatment providers such as Family Life Counseling, Catalyst Rehab Services, The UMADAOP Outreach Program, the Richland County Common Pleas Court SATC, and more.
