General Information

The Brown County Drug Court Program is a court that is specifically designated and staffed to handle cases involving dependent offenders through an intensive, judicially-monitored program of drug and alcohol treatment, rehabilitation services, and strict community supervision.

The Drug Court concept is based on an innovative program that was first developed in Miami, Florida in 1989. The Drug Court concept has since received widespread attention as an effective treatment strategy for drug-involved criminal offenders. There are more than 2,300 such programs now in operation in jurisdictions throughout the nation.

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