Camden Recovery Court to Celebrate Graduation
Assignment Judge Deborah Silverman Katz announced today that the Camden Vicinage will celebrate a virtual graduation of 23 participants from its recovery court program on Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 10 a.m.
Superior Court Judge Francisco Dominguez will preside. Attorney Landon Hacker, a former recovery court graduate, will be the keynote speaker. Graduation speakers also include Camden County Assistant Prosecutor Greg Audino and Assistant Deputy Public Defenders Katina Chase and Lou Presenza.
The Judiciary’s recovery court program addresses nonviolent, addicted offenders. The rigorous program requires completion of four phases of intensive drug and alcohol treatment and recovery, under court supervision.
The vicinage’s recovery court program, which began in 1996, has 557 participants and has graduated 919 graduates.
