What is Adult Drug Court?
Adult Drug Court addresses the cause of the criminal activity (addiction to drugs) and decreases the likelihood of a return to that criminal activity.
Through a strict and disciplined rehabilitation program, participants are given a chance to recover from the addiction that led to their crime and build a new life in recovery; to find a better quality of life for the individual and the community.
It is a win/win situation for all involved. The addict gets a chance for a new life. The law is enforced. The cost to the taxpayer is reduced while maintaining public safety.
Drug Court has proven to reduce return to criminal activity (recidivism). The program can change an addict from criminal to a law abiding citizen.
