The Role of Drug Courts

Drug courts exist in order to lessen the strain on regular criminal courts and ensure that those charged with drug offenses can be provided with opportunities to reintegrate with society after they have served their sentence. The goal of drug courts is to use the resources at their disposal to reduce recidivism rates among those convicted of drug offenses in Florida.

Drug courts offer a variety of services designed to reduce recidivism, including:

  • Drug and alcohol testing
  • Educational material
  • Integration and referral to appropriate drug and alcohol treatment
  • Ongoing monitoring to ensure effectiveness and compliance

Benefits of Drug Court

Many drug crimes are committed because of the disease of addiction. When you successfully complete drug court, you avoid jail time and may be able to keep a felony conviction off your record.

If you’re eligible, a drug court can order you to go into a pretrial treatment-based drug court program, but only if you agree in writing to be sanctioned if you don’t complete the program as directed. You could also go into a post-adjudicatory treatment-based drug court program as a condition of probation or community control.

Post-Adjudicatory Drug Courts

First offenders with up to one nonviolent misdemeanor or who face charges of a misdemeanor or third degree felony are eligible for release to a pretrial intervention program. This is contingent on approval from the program administrator, the state attorney, the judge who oversaw your case, and the victim of the alleged offense. If the defendant completes the program successfully, they can avoid more serious criminal consequences.
