Drug Court is a specialized, problem-solving court for non-violent offenders with a substance abuse addiction and a likelihood for rehabilitation. This unique criminal justice program provides for increased judicial supervision and accountability of the participants while providing immediate access to substance abuse treatment.
Drug Court participants must make regular court appearances before the designated Drug Court judge. The participants receive treatment, meet frequently with their Drug Court officer, submit to frequent drug tests, attend individual and group counseling for substance abuse, and attend self-help meetings on a weekly basis.
