Cass Co., Mich. A program that helps those with addictions, and can bring families back together was honored today in Cass County.

On Tuesday, the Cass County drug courts were honored by the national association for their incredible success at transforming the lives of seriously addicted individuals.

Their All Rise America RV is driving 3,500 miles from California to New York promoting the importance of how these programs play in people’s lives.

“The last time I was pregnant I was a drug addict, and my son was removed from me because I was a drug addict,” said Britia Anderson who completed the program. “And family treatment court gave me my life back, they showed me how to be a healthy parent, a healthy person, and how to put a healthy family together. And now I have my family together and it's, it's like a dream come true to me.”

Officials say drug courts save up to $1,300 for every individual served and annually lead over 80,000 individuals to a life of abstinence and long-term recovery.
