TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Chances are, you or someone you know has or still is battling drug addiction.

It's a hard topic to talk about, but one group hopes to break the stigma by celebrating resources.

Thursday was declared 'Drug Court Month' in Vigo County.

Treatment courts play a vital role in communities across the country.

They work with those struggling to give them a second chance at life.

Organizers say it's an intense program that helps people stay sober and out of jail.

Vigo County Drug Court has been fully operating since 1996.
