WHAT IS DRUG COURT?
Drug Court is a specialized court designed to handle cases involving less serious drug-using offenders through a supervision a treatment program.
The program includes frequent drug-testing, case management, substance abuse counseling, treatment, educational opportunities, judicial supervision and incremental rewards and punishment.
The judge is actively involved in supervising drug court offenders – more than just placing an individual in a probationary or diversionary program for drug treatment.
At any time during your participation, you can be terminated from the program by the Drug Court Judge for non compliance with the rules and treatment plan, which may result in  imprisonment.
MISSION
