Felony Drug Court
The Felony Drug Court provides a non-traditional approach to working with criminal offenders who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. Instead of incarceration, the Felony Drug Court offers a judicially supervised, intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment program for qualified participants. It is a five-phase program lasting from 18 to 24 months, and consisting of individual counseling, group therapy, education, monitoring, and regular drug testing.
