The Turn Celebrates National Recovery Month

The Turn, the Wright County Adult Drug Court, celebrated National Recovery Month in September by recognizing the gains made by those in recovery. 

Participants of The Turn were provided with a list of meetings, recovery events and activities that started in late-August and will run until November 2021. The information was provided by the Recovery Community Network, and participation included:

  • Six participants and one alumni member and their families and friends attended the “Rally Cap for Recovery” Twins vs. Indians game on the night of September 14. Even though the Twins lost 3-1, a night of fun and laughs was enjoyed by all attending the sober event. The tickets were provided by the Minnesota Recovery Connection, and donated t-shirts were provided to the participants and their guests. 
  • On September 18, one participant collected donations to assist in continued support for the recovery community. He participated in the Minnesota Recovery Connection’s Annual Walk for Recovery at the Minnesota Capitol. 

To round out National Recovery Month, The Turn celebrated two graduates from the program. The graduates both started the program in September 2019 and graduated on September 23, 2021. Their combined number of sober days were 1,470. They both completed more than 185 drug tests and attended more than 50 court sessions. Both graduates are employed full time and living in a sober living setting. 

The mission of The Turn is to enhance the cost-effectiveness of the county criminal justice system by providing intensive case management, treatment, and court supervision for individuals arrested for drug-related offenses. By holding participants accountable for their actions and providing them with access to a diverse range of needed services, participants are equipped with the necessary tools to lead productive, drug-free, and crime-free lives.
