NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – It was graduation day in Davidson County’s Drug Court.

More than 12 Nashvillians successfully complete a strict treatment program, required to clear their arrest history.

Each graduate spoke to a packed room during the ceremony.

The three-phase program offers those arrested for nonviolent offenses a rehabilitation program that lasts between 12 and 18 months.

“The person I was then is not the person I am today. I’m a mother today to my daughter, and I’ve built relationships not only with my family but people in the program,” said graduate Cameron Estes.

The volunteer recovery program includes treatment monitoring, GED classes, counseling and job skills.
