Brookings County Drug Court

Our Mission

The mission of the Brookings County Drug Court is to enhance public safety with the goal of developing sober, productive, law-abiding citizens by holding the offender accountable while providing supervision, treatment, and life skills in a judicial setting.

General Description

Brookings County Drug Court was established July 1, 2016 and our first participants were accepted into the program on July 7, 2016.

The Brookings County Drug Court is designed for persons whose problems stem from substance abuse. As an individual enters this program, he or she must be motivated to work toward changing their lifestyle and becoming free of alcohol and chemical addiction. The program is accessible regardless of age, religion, sex, ethnic origin, sexual preference, marital status, age or physical and/or mental disability.

The Brookings County Drug Court is a court-managed, alcohol/drug intervention treatment program designed to provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional criminal case processing. Drug Court is a voluntary program, which includes regular appearances before the Drug Court judge, frequent and random drug testing, substance abuse counseling in individual and group settings, mental health counseling, educational classes, a system of behavior modification based on incentives and sanctions, and intense community supervision by a Drug Court Team. Drug Court requires participants to participate in community support groups and to be employed. The Program can be successfully completed within sixteen (16) months to two (2) years.
