Welcome to the 41-A District Court Sobriety Court Program. Who you are - and who you will become - are very important to us. We have looked at your past only to decide if you belong in this innovative, problem-solving court. Now, together, we will look to the future, to the positive changes you can make in your life as you successfully navigate our program.
Treatment courts started in the late 1980’s in response to a firmly held belief that the traditional criminal justice system was not successfully handling drug-related cases. While these innovative courts vary widely in specific practices and procedures, all drug treatment courts share an underlying belief that addicted people can change if they are given the right tools, encouragement and supervision. They can beat their addiction.
Using court-supervised treatment, together with close supervision and frequent random drug testing, the members of a drug treatment court work as a unified team to help individuals change into drug and alcohol free, law-abiding citizens.
The bottom line - treatment courts work and our Sobriety Court Program can work for you!
