Coy Graduates Judge Braig’s ARC


DECEMBER 14, 2023–Judge Kevin P. Braig and the Logan County Court of Common Pleas Adult Recovery Court (ARC) Team are pleased to announce the graduation of Colby Coy of Marysville, Ohio, from the ARC.

“I enjoyed getting to know Colby,” Judge Braig said. “He is kind of a cool dude. He is a talented auto mechanic and a motorcycle enthusiast. I have seen him grow and mature in the program. He became engaged and recently bought a house. We have had some participants purchase homes after graduation, but I think he is the first to become a homeowner before graduation. I am proud of him and I think he should have many reasons to feel optimistic about his own future.”

ARC participants, treatment providers, and more than a dozen of Coy’s family, friends, and supporters celebrated with an afternoon of bowling at TP Lanes in Bellefontaine.

“I greatly appreciate TP Lanes opening its facility to our participants,” Judge Braig said. “It is a fun place to bowl and everyone loves their pizza. Colby is a pretty good bowler. Some other participants surprised me with their bowling skills. Jackie Edminster was on fire. On the other hand, I am not good at bowling. But it is still a lot of fun.”

The ARC treatment team works within the framework of the traditional Logan County Common Pleas Court.  The ARC’s mission is to achieve specific, rehabilitative objectives. The objectives of the ARC are to monitor the treatment for substance abuse disorder of ARC participants, encourage and incentivize ARC participants to achieve rehabilitation and personal accountability, and decrease criminal activity and the need for incarceration.

The ARC provides its participants with the support of Judge Braig, Treatment Coordinator and Program Manager Annette Deao, Compliance Officers Jim Pleasant and Mandy Wilber, and treatment providers from TCN Behavioral Health Services, Community Health Wellness, the Justice Reinvestment Grant, Logan County Assistant Prosecutor Erin Rosen, local attorneys Natalie Bahan and Greg Harvey, and others.  The members of the ARC Team share the goals of (1) empowering ARC participants through treatment, accountability, and responsibility, (2) assisting ARC participants in achieving recovery from substance abuse disorder, and (3) helping ARC participants lead useful and productive lives.
