The Drug Court is a voluntary, deferred sentence program with a committed team approach. The team is comprised of drug court judges, prosecutors. defense counsel, probation officers, treatment professionals and administrative personnel. The goal of the team is to work cooperatively to ensure offenders the opportunity to become productive members of the community through sober and responsible living: thereby, avoiding incarceration, enhancing public safety and reducing recidivism.

Achievement of this goal has been shown to result in substantial savings both in terms of money and lives saved.
