May Is National Drug Court Month
Legislature Chairman Russ Johnson presents a proclamation in support of Oswego County’s Family and Criminal Treatment Courts for National Drug Court Month. The treatment courts combine judicial accountability and evidence-based treatment to intervene against substance abuse and related crime and child neglect. More than 300 people have been involved in treatment court programs since Oswego County’s Drug Treatment Court began in 1999.
