‘I choose to live’: ‘Drug Court’ helps change lives around

Drug Court is a new program through the justice system in Lancaster and Chester counties that helps dozens of people free themselves from addiction.

“This is not a script. This is not a commercial,” said Billy Barnes, a graduate of the program. “This is real life and I choose to live today.”
