BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's first adult drug court is

celebrating its tenth anniversary.

The Bismarck-Mandan Drug-DUI Court began Jan. 5, 2001, giving

nonviolent drug and alcohol offenders an alternative to being

locked up. They must go through treatment and probation and meet

other requirements. Officials say 102 people have successfully

completed the program.

An anniversary celebration is planned Friday at the Burleigh

County Courthouse in Bismarck.
