Drug Court offers redemption

Houma Today - After graduating from Terrebonne Parish Drug Court in April, Cody Chauvin said he feels like a new man.

Before Drug Court, Chauvin said he was arrested more than 65 times and was addicted to crystal methamphetamine. Today he does construction work, surrounds himself with a support network and has found a new lease on life.

“I’m chasing dreams today,” Chauvin said. “I’m doing things I never done before. I want to succeed in life and be an active member of society because I’ve been a menace to society all my life.”
