On Wednesday, April 8, the Oakland County Adult Treatment Court (ATC) conducted its 42nd graduation since its inception in August of 2001. The 191st through the 193rd graduates were honored with a ceremony and reception held in the Oakland County Commissioners Auditorium in Pontiac. Oakland County Circuit Court Judges (front, left to right) Joan Young and Colleen O’Brien were happy to congratulate graduates (back, left to right) Karl Wayne and Christopher Shatrau.  The ATC offers a sentencing alternative for non-violent felony offenders with serious substance abuse problems.  This program addresses the underlying substance abuse problems that lead many offenders to engage in criminal behavior.  Beyond the extremely close judicial and community supervision and the intense substance-abuse treatment, frequent substance abuse testing is required.
