Adult Drug Court

Our Office represents the State before the Superior Court’s Adult Drug Court, which handles cases involving offenders with substance abuse disorders. Participants are subject to random weekly drug screens and are closely monitored through case reviews.

The goal is to integrate substance abuse treatment within the criminal justice system and divert non-violent felony defendants facing drug or drug-related charges.

The Drug Court stays in constant contact with the treatment provider throughout the defendant’s participation. If all requirements and expectations are met after 12 months of review, participants are provided the opportunity to have their charges dismissed and corresponding court records sealed and expunged.
