You Could Be A Candidate For Alternative Sentencing In Drug Court
For those who are facing serious criminal charges that are related to an addiction to drugs, drug courts offer the incentive to get help and the tools with which one may help himself or herself. Drug court may be the last, best option drug offenders have before they are sentenced to prison.
Drug courts came into being to address the needs of those who are addicted to drugs and facing serious criminal charges. Previously, the incentive to avoid prison was present, but it was insufficient to cause people to take the steps necessary to avoid the consequences of a conviction. Addiction is often the source of the criminal activity. To effectively tackle the addiction, most people needed more than just motivation, they needed the tools to overcome their addiction, including:
- Drug screens
- Drug treatment and rehabilitation
- Regular court monitoring
