Drug Courts utilize a multidisciplinary team approach to treat eligible and appropriate drug addicted people involved in the criminal justice system. The Court provides review and oversight with swift and effective consequences for violation of program rules as well as incentives and rewards for compliance. Treatment follows a graduated model with constant drug testing and monitoring. Although consequences such as detention may occur, the focus and goal remains to modify behavior in order to eliminate the cycle of substance abuse and recurring crime. Please contact one of our offices for more information about specific program eligibility and participation requirements or look up our various Administrative Orders under Research, Administrative Orders.
