Drug court program is a highly specialized team process that functions within
the existing Superior Court structure to address non-violent drug related
cases. Their mission is to stop the abuse of alcohol and other drugs along
with the related criminal
activity. They are unique in the criminal justice setting because they build
a close, collaborative connection between criminal justice and drug treatment
professionals. Within a cooperative courtroom atmosphere the judge heads
a team of court staff, attorneys, probation officers, substance abuse evaluators,
treatment professionals. They are all working together to support and
monitor an individual’s
recovery. Together, they maintain a critical balance of authority, supervision,
support, and encouragement. A drug court program is rigorous, requiring intensive
supervision based on frequent drug testing and court appearances, along with
tightly structured regimens of treatment and recovery services. This level
of supervision permits the program to actively support the recovery process
react swiftly to impose appropriate therapeutic sanctions or to reinstate
criminal proceedings when participants cannot abide by the drug court program.
The mission is to break the "revolving door" cycle of drugs and
crime. They are there to support participants in achieving total abstinence
from drugs and alcohol. They do this by promoting responsibility and accountability,
and by teaching
to become productive members in the community. The drug court program is an
alternative to jail and/or prison and integrates chemical dependency treatment
and community resources/ancillary services with the criminal justice system.
