When clients have completed the requisite one-year treatment program and no longer need further monitoring or case management services, the counselor recommends discharge to the judge, who makes the final decision. In order to graduate the client must have completed a minimum of 12 months in the program, demonstrate insight into recovery, must be gainfully employed, attending school or receiving vocational training if able, have a minimum of 6 months of clean time without any sanctions, and have all fees paid to the court and the program. Both the treatment counselor and the judge examine participants' overall recovery. At the final Court appearance, clients "graduate" and are released from Court supervision. Upon graduating, qualified clients may file to expunge their arrest record.
