IN GNEWS TODAY... 5 graduate from T&T Drug Treatment Court...

Valedictorian of the local Drug Treatment Court, Michael Forde never knew an adult life without drugs, but today his drug tests are negative and he is thankful to the justice system that is helping his recovery from drug addiction.

In his address at the graduation ceremony of the first batch of five graduates from the San Fernando Magistrate’s DTC at the Trinidad Hilton, Forde thanked Chief Justice Ivor Archie for introducing the programme and all those who worked with him and the others in their recovery.

His advice to current and future participants of the DTC is “Let not this opportunity be a chance to get away from prison. Let it be a chance to change your whole life.”

When he joined the programme last year, Forde, in his early fifties, said a man told him “You so smart, you don’t want to go to prison. You just riding the DTC bandwagon.”

He told the man, “You don’t understand. I come to the realisation that that life (of drugs) don’t make no sense.”

Forde said the graduates were all recovering addicts whose lives were controlled by drugs.

Recalling the day he was arrested for drugs, he said he thought he was “bad lucky, but it was actually a blessing in disguise.”.....AND THAT’S GNEWS FOR TODAY.
