The Passaic Vicinage will hold a hybrid graduation ceremony for 29 participants of its recovery court on Thursday, May 4 at 9:30 a.m. at Passaic County Community College in Paterson. The college will also provide a live stream of the ceremony.

The Judiciary’s recovery court program operates within the Superior Court to address non-violent drug addicted offenders. The program requires completion of several phases of intensive drug and alcohol treatment and recovery. Recovery court programs are rigorous, requiring intensive probation supervision, treatment, frequent drug testing, and regularly scheduled court appearances.
The Passaic recovery court program has more than 550 active participants.
