Drug Court

Drug Court

Drug Court is a used as a term to refer to any number of specialty courts, (including DUI and Veteran) designed to target felony offenders with problems stemming from chemical addiction. Drug Court promotes sobriety, recovery, and stability through a coordinated response that involves collaboration with the courts, treatment, and community partners. It is a specially designed docket. Participation in Drug Court includes regular appearances before the Drug Court judge, frequent and random drug testing, a system of behavior modification based on incentives and sanctions, and intense community supervision by the Drug Court Team. Drug Court programs:
  1. Enhance public safety
  2. Ensure participant accountability
  3. Reduce costs to society
The core-structure for the implementation of a Drug Court is the 10 Key Components, published by the US Department of Justice Programs. (www.ndci.org)
