The Drug Court is a a voluntary diversion and treatment program that identifies a defendant who has a substance abuse problem by redirecting them from the ordinary course of prosecution via intensive supervision by the presiding judge and rehabilitation through treatment specialists for a minimum of one year. 

In addition, State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle created an additional diversionary treatment track to address a population of drug offenders who are low-risk for re-offending and are referred for services. Our Drug Court uses evidence-based assessment tools and treatment to ensure we are providing the appropriate interventions for maximum outcomes.
