 According to the West Virginia Supreme Court, the McDowell County Adult Drug Court will hold its opening ceremony at noon Friday. The event will be held in McDowell County Circuit Judge Booker T. Stephens' courtroom.

Stephens will speak, along with state Supreme Court Justice Brent D. Benjamin and Mike B. Lacy, director of West Virginia Probation Services.

Drug courts strive to reduce substance abuse and improve rehabilitation through treatment, periodic drug testing, community supervision and other services. The first adult drug court in West Virginia was established in 2005 in the Northern Panhandle.
