Jeb Bush: Daughter Failed Treatment

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS,  7/17/02,  Filed at 2:20 p.m. ET. Originally posted: July 17, 2002; Revised: June 16, 2004.

Gov. Jeb Bush's 24-year-old daughter Noelle has failed to meet the conditions of a drug treatment plan ordered by a court, the governor said Wednesday.

Noelle Bush was arrested in January at a pharmacy drive-through window for allegedly trying to buy the anti-anxiety drug Xanax with a fraudulent prescription. She was admitted to a drug treatment center in February, with the possibility the charges would be dropped if she completed the program.

It was not immediately clear how she violated the conditions of the program and what the consequences would be.

Her father sent an e-mail to reporters notifying them of his daughter's lapse.

"My family is saddened to share that our daughter Noelle has not abided by the conditions of her drug court treatment plan,'' Bush said. "Unfortunately, this happens to many individuals even as they continue their journey to full recovery.

"There are consequences for every action we take in our lives, and as her parents, Columba and I wish we could have prevented our daughter from making the wrong choices.''

The governor added: "We love Noelle, but she is an adult, and I respect the role of the courts in carrying out our state's drug treatment policies.''
