The Superior Court of Santa Barbara County celebrated National Recovery Month by honoring five graduates of the Santa Maria Substance Abuse Treatment Court Program.
The 12-month program involves different phases of intensive treatment, probation supervision and court reviews. Sobriety, recovery and stability are very important themes throughout the program.
Tuesday’s graduation marks the 72nd commencement of the Santa Maria program.
Several guests were invited to speak and personally congratulate the five graduates.
The Santa Barbara Superior Court said graduates who successfully completed their treatment program have maintained sobriety.
