New name, same purpose.

At a ceremony Thursday the Erie County Benchmark Program transitioned into the new Intervention Court, which will encompass both drug and alcohol abuse treatment programs and mental health treatment.

The last two Benchmark graduates received certificates for completing the 16-month program which addresses substance abuse issues. In addition, the graduates will have their criminal charges cleared for continual compliance with the program's standards.
