A Unique Partnership

Drug Diversion Courts' are built upon a unique partnership between the criminal justice system and drug treatment community; one which structures treatment intervention around the authority and personal involvement of a single Drug Court judge. Drug Courts' are also dependent upon the creation of a non-adversarial courtroom atmosphere where a single judge and a dedicated team of court officers and staff work together toward a common goal of breaking the cycle of drug abuse and criminal behavior.
