Drug Court

We Do Recover

A drug court is specially designed for non violent drug users who have committed a crime. The main aim of drug courts is to place the individual into a drug rehabilitation program and helping the individual return to a normal, drug free lifestyle as a healthier and more cost effective alternative to imprisonment.

So, what exactly is Drug Court? Well, it’s an innovative program that aims to break the cycle of addiction by diverting non-violent offenders into treatment instead of traditional incarceration. The focus is on rehabilitation rather than punishment, providing individuals with the opportunity to address their substance abuse issues head-on.

Drug Courts operate within the legal system, with judges overseeing the process. They work closely with a collaborative team, including treatment professionals, probation officers, and prosecutors, to develop individualized treatment plans. These plans often include a combination of counselling, therapy, group support, drug testing, and regular court check-ins.

One significant advantage of Drug Court is its emphasis on accountability. Participants are required to adhere to strict guidelines, attend regular court hearings, and comply with the conditions set by the court. By closely monitoring their progress, Drug Courts aim to keep participants on the path to recovery and reduce the likelihood of reoffending.

Now, you might be wondering how Drug Court came to be. The concept was first introduced in the late 1980s as a response to the growing recognition that traditional punitive approaches to drug offenses were not achieving desired outcomes. Gradually, the program gained momentum as research demonstrated its effectiveness in reducing substance use, criminal behavior, and costs associated with repeated incarceration.

Today, Drug Courts exist in many communities across the United States and have become an integral part of the addiction recovery landscape. They offer hope and a second chance to people trapped in the destructive grip of addiction, providing a supportive environment where rehabilitation takes precedence over punishment.
