ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) The 23rd class of Roanoke Drug Court graduated today at a ceremony in Hotel Roanoke.

One of the fourteen participant's, Stormy Barbour, says it's been a lot of hard work since she started in December 2014, but it's worth it for her 13-month-old son Connor.

"It's not at all easy. It's very hard, and you've got to be 100% dedicated to it or it doesn't work," stated Barbour.

Salem Commonwealth's Attorney, Tom Bowers stated, "As a CA you see a losses. You see death. You see overdoses. And to come today and see 14 people who have a new chance at life, it's very exciting"

Roanoke had the first drug court in the state, and they hope to graduate another class in December.
