KPAX: Sen. Daines hears case for additional MT drug court funding

Members of Helena’s drug-court treatment team met with Senator Daines on Friday to talk about successes and struggles. Two drug-court treatment graduates, Dawn Knowles and Joe Wolhers, said the program has helped them recover, after years of addiction and family trauma.

Daines said he’s a big proponent of treatment courts which sometimes can be funded by federal money. Helena treatment-court judge, James Reynolds, said another 80 families in Helena could benefit from the courts and that they should certainly be expanded.
