Thirty-one years of drinking and drugging led Sheron Bounds to over a year of incarceration. It was while she was in jail, she first heard about the Bexar County Adult Drug Court (BCADC). The BCADC strives to reduce arrest and incarceration rates of alcohol and drug offenders in the criminal justice system. The Adult Drug Court holds defendants accountable and assists them in achieving long-term recovery.
As part of her probation, Sheron entered the BCADC. Faced with being homeless after her release, Sheron entered Haven for Hope over two years ago. While at Haven and continuing the Adult Drug Court, Sheron was able to address some of her underlying mental health issues. She was able to access other needed resources such as employment and counseling services. Now 21
months sober, Sheron recently graduated from Adult Drug Court. She is working towards obtaining housing and someday hopes to pay it forward by counseling others with addiction issues. We are thankful for Sheron’s success!
