Tulsa's drug and DUI and court programs wrapped up its graduation ceremony at OSU-Tulsa on Friday afternoon. About 50 graduates walked across the stage to mark a huge milestone in their recovery process.

If you don't know what drug court graduation is, it's basically an alternative program to jail time. The graduates all have been arrested for things like non-violent drug offenses and DUI. They are given the opportunity to complete a two-year treatment program to get their lives back on track.

Coming up tonight at 5 p.m., we'll have the story of one graduate who has overcome the death of her mother and the brutal murder of her son, along with completing the program.
