TO WORK FOR YOU
Drug Courts are the first of the specialty treatment diversionary courts to be widely adopted. Under certain circumstances people charged with a drug-related crime who have a history of substance abuse or addiction can request or volunteer to have their case diverted out of traditional court and into the local drug court.
In drug court, a team of professionals, including judges, attorneys, probation officers, counselors, and drug treatment professionals, work in a coordinated way to assist the client in dealing with their substance issues. In doing so, if successful, the court may dispose of their criminal case with considerably reduced consequences.
