Summary


During all phases, documented attendance at Alcoholics and/or Narcotics Anonymous meetings is required. Other program components that support recovery include employment, education, and family education.


The Drug Court Team recommends incentives for exceptional progress, as well as sanctions for program violations, to the Judge. Sanctions will be graduated based on your history of behavior, gravity and frequency of the offense, and your demonstrated truthfulness and accountability for your behavior. In the case of major violations, a determination may be made that continuation in the program is not in the best interest of the program or the participant. Sentencing, then, will proceed, based on the original charges, with loss of first offender status.
