Chief Justice Roggensack congratulates Milwaukee County Family Drug Treatment Court on 50th graduate

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - May 24, 2018

Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Patience Drake Roggensack today recognized the Milwaukee County Family Drug Treatment Court Program on reaching the milestone of its 50th graduate.

"I congratulate Milwaukee County on the work they are doing with the Family Drug Treatment Court Program. When a family falls apart because of a parent's addiction, the children suffer significantly. We cannot effectively remedy the problems in the family without treating the parent’s addiction," Roggensack said.

Established in April 2011, the Milwaukee County program was the first of its kind in Wisconsin and has served as a model for programs elsewhere. A celebration will be held May 25 in Milwaukee. Read the press release here.
