your better off to just do the 30-90 days in jail and get it over. I know about the WestCare program. Over there and Pikeville WestCare a.k.a homeless shelter as well. If you want to get to know Judge friend and his niece a.k.a Joe Friends daughter. Just join like I did. You will loose. Your time will double after agreeing to the program and failing do to hearsay. And Judge Friend feeds off of hearsay.

It is run like a bootcamp. They have their favorates, and that is not good. If you have a re-laspe, some of the staff talk trash about you. I really can't see where that helps anyone. But, this is just my opinion. By the way, I am an adult, never used drugs, but has had a family member that was there.

I will go ahead and disagree with everything you said. Westcare saved my life and I know others that would say the same thing.

If you think Westcare is a joke and does not work then you are not ready to be productive in life. And quit being a burden on society. I graduated from the jail program. I have been sober for 2 yrs. this month. With the help of Westcare the program help me find GOD. If your not ready to be sober you are wasting there time and mine. It is a great program and easy, just complicated people.

Ryan happens to be my cousin and a good friend. Why talk about his weight??? Why not talk about how he has straightened his life up thanks to Westcare? And that he is now tryin to do something with his life. He is a good person. There is no sense in talkin about his weight.

I don't know your cousin, and I don't know why people want to get on here and judge others. But it's great that it has helped him. I know a couple others that have been through this program and I think I would be speaking for them when I say, that it pretty much helped saved their lives. From what I've heard from them, this is a very good program...And congratulations, "partner" on your 2 years of sobriety!

Here's what burns me up, the same people who are trashing Judge Friend and the west care program are the very people that will complain and want something done about the drug addicts in this county! First of all, the West Care homeless shelter doesn't have anything to do the the Ashcamp facility or the men or women's program held in the Pike County Detention Center. What you are referring to is "drug court" and that program is usually a waste of time and tax payer's money. I am an addict and went through west care (in jail program) and for the first time in almost 20 years my life is going great and I am a productive member of this community. If you aren't familiar with the things that go on in that program I challenge you to educate yourself and then comment on it again. Furthermore, you may not like Jdg.Friend (or his family) but one thing is certain, at least he puts forth an effort to change and save lives instead of being a puppet for the Commonwealth and putting drug and alcohol abusers back on the street like several other judges in this county. If more judges were like him maybe we could have avoided the loss of life we've had in other situations where offenders were just slapped on the hand for what they had done. West Care is a wonderful program and I encourage anyone who has a problem or has a loved one with a problem to look into getting them into the program.

Bad thing about Westcare is the only people that get to go there and get help is the ones that the courthouse knows and send them there.

That is 100% UNTRUE! Alot of people are scared to go to WC because it is backed by UNITE, but the program has absolutely nothing to do with the division of UNITE that works with the law enforcement. Anyone can get help in these programs. Most of the residents that are in the jail programs have drug related charges and that's how they got in, but if you would like to participate in the treatment programs outside of the jail all you have to do is contact them and as long as a bed is available they will work to get you in. There are even participants at the jail programs that have no charges at all. There is a law called "Casey's Law" that allows friends and family to have a person evaluated and ordered into long term treatment. Look into it.
