Why does Harlan County Have a Drug Court. Is the Judge is this town so blind that he can not see this program is a joke. People come with piss in condoms, drug court use clean piss to help people they know out, drug court workers call participates and give then heads up when they are coming to check on them. Hell give me a job there, I can sit and talk with people. When is Harlan going get there shit together and get a program that actually works, what happened to ethics. Does the judge actually want to see people get clean or is it just a numbers game.

I have heard that girls cheat.I reckon that before I got in, there was a tester that was allowing guys to cheat.Not anymore.The only way possible to beat the system would be to know the testing schedule in advance and do something when we get 2 days off which doesn't happen much.

There is to curfew checks, John Clem does them all the time. It is not a joke and you can not cheat on the drug tests. It is impossible, they watch you pee. If you do cheat you get terminated. Its way better than prision and has helped me alot. Basicly saved my life so know what you are talking about before you say it.

I know of someone that said they actually watch them pee so they can't cheat. She also has to do so many hours of community service. Maybe it depends on who is there at the time or who you know. So far though, it has changed this woman's life for the better.
leave her alone

well thats a shame YOU couldnt stay sober for your babys sake i wouldnt need drug court to want a healthy drug free baby. how many did you have addicted to dope. people are pathetic if you are staying sober for drug court then what happens when you get out, i will tell you- you will be tha same as before. and all the men that is in drug court need to get jobs and take care of their kids instead of wanting the state to do it for them.

Drug court is a great thing ,but first you have to want to get your life together for it to work. Not just wanting to hurry and get out so you can get high how dumb is that??? Your given a great opportunity to change your live's for the best. And have the life that GOD has intended for you. Get your heart's straight and give your life to the LORD and I Promise you will never think of drug's again. I know I am far from perfect but I know waht is in my heart and it sure aint drug's. The good LORD has helped me stay clean for over 18 month's now and I know I could of have never done it with out him.

I'll tell you guys about drug court. They do watch the male participants test. Closely. It would be very difficult to cheat. I'd say that it has been done before but it would be hard to. John and Debbie do curfew checks regularly and if you're not home when they call you will get a sanction. Drug Court is not a joke and I'll tell you why......

First of all, Gary Planck was right. You hafta want to succeed for it to work. I tried for 2 years to quit OC's but couldn't without help. I went to a faith-based rehab in North Carolina but it did nothing for me. Drug Court is way better than jail or rehab. Anyone can stay sober for 18 months in jail. If you go to rehab and they let you leave the rehab, you're not familiar with your surroundings. When you're in drug court, you get to live your life here in Harlan, which is home but you can't get high. You get to go to work and save some money. I drive by all of the places where I used to buy stuff but it's not an option anymore. I see people that I used to be associated with everyday that I used for drugs in some form but it's no longer an option. Man, yall haters don't even know. Drug court is the best opportunity available if you want to stop using drugs.

Judgemental are we? Heaven forbid that you would ever have to walk a mile in their shoes. You never really know how you will deal with something until it affects you personally. I think they should be commended for attempting to get sober for any reason, whether it was forced on them by drug court or whatever.

By the way I have to throw this in their. I was clean and sober for 7 month's and in Church before I started drug court. And no I sure did'nt do it on my own. THe good LORD was there giving me the strengh that I need to stay the way I am today.

If you've never battled addiction, you CAN'T understand it or how hard it is to deal with. BTW this is about drug court, not individuals.

Good on you Gary and Brad for getting your lives straight. It takes alot to come on here and say what you have said, and we all know what it takes for a user to get clean and sober. My respect goes out to you.
