PIERRE | Lt. Gov. Matt Michels will be the guest speaker at a drug court graduation ceremony and open house in Pierre on Wednesday.

The event is one of several being held in May to celebrate National Drug Court Month. Drug courts help people combat addiction, reduce prison populations and help participants remain in the workforce and with their families.

There are five drug courts in South Dakota and three more are scheduled to open this fall.

Other upcoming events include a drug court celebration in Sioux Falls on May 29 and a graduation ceremony in Rapid City on June 18. Chief Justice David Gilbertson will be the guest speaker at the Rapid City ceremony.

The events are open to the public.
