It’s a win for taxpayers. It’s a win for the court system. It’s a win for many people across the country. The Christian County Problem-Solving Court honored 11 people who completed the program Friday afternoon and are commencing on their journey back into addiction-free life.

 

Christian County Resident Judge Brad Paisley gave those in attendance the numbers for how much taxpayer money is saved through the problem-solving court compared to sending the people to prison.

 

 

Matt Ruff is one of the graduates honored Friday. He wants all of those struggling with a recovery and have not come forward to know that there is help for them.

 

 

Paisley says 77 percent of those who complete Problem-Solving Court are never arrested again, although he jokingly said to the honorees at the ceremony that it “better be 100 percent of you.”
