LEBANON, PA — On June 27, 2018, the Lebanon County Day Reporting Center (DRC) graduated four program participants, the first group of graduates since the DRC opened its doors in October, 2017. The graduation took place at the DRC building, located at 624 Cumberland Street in downtown Lebanon, PA.
The four graduates were initially accepted into the DRC program to combat their addictive behaviors. During the past six months, each participant reported to the DRC up to six days per week to work toward improving their whole self through therapy, life skills training, job preparation, learning healthy living strategies and more. To achieve graduation, each participant was required to attend all designated classes, stay sober and successfully obtain steady employment.
During the graduation ceremony, Mitch Pegg, program director at the DRC, stood in front of the attendees to congratulate each participant for maintaining the work ethic, endurance and personal change needed to complete the program. To help the graduates see the significance of their accomplishment, Pegg reminded them of where they began and encouraged them to never forget where they came from.
