Dorthea Boulet on Being Thankful For Her Arrest

Dorthea “Dee Dee” Boulet was arrested for possession of a controlled substance in Charleston, West Virginia in 2007. She was sentenced to two to 10 years in prison, but then offered the opportunity to participate in the drug court program instead. While going through the drug court program, Boulet was a resident at Marie’s House Recovery Center in Wayne, West Virginia.

Today, Boulet lives independently and has been sober for two and a half years. She has custody of her children and plans to start college in the fall of 2020.
