What is a Drug Court?
Drug Courts are an effective problem-solving approach for addressing
the problem of drug and alcohol abuse in the court system. Developed
in the early 1990s as a more effective alternative to traditional
criminal justice prosecution for drug and alcohol related offenses,
these courts work closely with non-violent offenders with drug and/or
alcohol related charges in an effort to stop the abuse of alcohol and
other drugs and criminal activity related to this abuse.
Drug courts closely monitor the client's progress toward sobriety and
recovery. Drug courts provide access to to treatment, in-patient and
outpatient therapy, perform frequent drug testing, require regular
mandatory meetings with their assigned case manager, use a range of
sanctions and incentives to foster positive behavior change, require
regularly scheduled court appearances, and provide access to
information regarding area meetings and other resources that would
assist the client in halting their abuse and dependency and leading a
successful drug free life within the community.

Program by providing community education about addiction, as
well as identifying and developing community resources that will
