ICTCF Announced New Leadership at this annual gathering!
LANSING, Mich. — The Ingham County Treatment Courts Foundation (ICTCF) celebrated its 8th annual breakfast on Friday, October 25, at the Country Club of Lansing.
The ICTCF supports local treatment courts* and their participants by providing monetary assistance to alleviate everyday financial obstacles that may hinder a participant’s progress towards sobriety while in the Court’s rehabilitation programs. Examples include assisting with substance abuse counseling fees, transportation costs, bills, utilities, drug screenings and any other needs that threaten their ability to finish the intensive court-ordered program.
This year’s keynote speakers will include ICTCF graduates, along with special guest: Staff Sgt. Tommy Rieman. Rieman has over 14 years of service in the Army and is a recipient of the Silver Star and the Purple Heart for valor in Iraq. He was also enrolled in North Carolina’s first-ever Veteran’s Treatment Court program. WLNS's Sheri Jones served as emcee on the occasion, here is some video from the breakfast.
At the breakfast some special announcements were made:
The Ingham County Treatment Court Foundation (ICTCF) is pleased to announce Ingham County Undersheriff Andy Bouck has been named the Foundation's president. This news was shared at the organization's annual fundraising breakfast on October 25.

Having policed in Ingham County for 25-plus years, Bouck brings unique perspective and first-hand experience to the life-changing value the Treatment Courts bring enrollees, “I have the experience of being involved on the front lines, on the streets, watching it through the Sheriff’s office as the participants are in our correctional facilities. It is uplifting to be involved in the treatment and recovery process. When I get to attend graduation and know the graduates have a new chance at life it is a success story,” says Bouck. “Your contributions are funding a multidisciplinary approach and you’re impacting lives for the better.”
Andy was quick to compliment former Foundation president and current Foster Swift attorney, John Nicolucci, for his contributions to the Foundation. Nicolucci has served as president since the Foundation’s inception in 2008.
