June 3, 2006

Hood River County Drug Court was founded last August to blend substance abuse treatment with judicial oversight.

“The driving principal behind it is recognizing that the root of most criminal activity is drug or alcohol abuse. And one of the best ways to protect the community is to deal with the root of the problem,” said Judge Paul Crowley, who is joined at the decision-making table by law enforcement and social service officials.
