Adult Drug Court

The Benton and Franklin Counties Adult Drug Court is an intensive treatment and accountability based program of the Benton and Franklin Counties Superior Court for adults charged with eligible crimes who exhibit substantial need for treatment for substance abuse to reduce the possibility of recidivism. The program lasts a minimum of 9 months for each participant and is designed to provide an alternative to full criminal prosecution at the pre-adjudication stage of legal proceedings.

 

The drug court includes rigorous community supervision and strict accountability, frequent and random substance abuse testing, regular (often weekly) court appearances, family/peer support involvement, and intensive treatment, services and education tailored to the individual needs of each participant. A combination of incentives and interventions is used to motivate participants and, upon completion of each stage of the program recognition is provided. A graduation ceremony is held upon successful completion of the program. All graduates are invited and encouraged to participate in the drug court Alumni Group for support and guidance after completion of the program.
