Drug-abusers who authorities say wouldn’t be criminals except for their addictions might get another shot at a drug-free life by participating in a new intensive drug court treatment program in Washington County, Va.

The program was announced Thursday, when the United Way of Russell and Washington Counties contributed $10,000 toward start-up costs. This money is in addition to $10,000 from the Washington County Board of Supervisors, and a total of $20,000 worth of drug seizure money from the county Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office and Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
