Drug Courts

When an individual is faced with a felony from a drug or alcohol related offense, courts will often give that person an option to participate in a diversion program. Diversion programs for the court are typically 18-24 months in length.

Several Court Diversion programs have had remarkable success in helping participants remain sober.

The Brooklyn Treatment Court which is one to two years in length sees 65% of the participants still sober after two years.

In Hawaii, the HOPE program found 72% of the participants less likely to use drugs after involvement in the program*
