Inside the Drug Court: part 1—the last chance
by Sharon Davis and sound engineer Steven Tilley (Earshot, ABC RN, 2015)
After a year of negotiations with the government of New South Wales, Australia, producer Sharon Davis was granted exclusive access to the state's Drug Courts — a program where long term addicts, many of them hardened criminals, are released from jail in order to join a strict rehabilitation program designed to end their addiction.. In the first episode of this three part series, Sharon follows three addicts on their journey to sobriety through the Drug Court system.
