Drug Court is a specialized criminal court. Defendants who have been convicted multiple times for drug offenses are referred there as a “last chance” to stay out of prison. Successful graduates of drug court will have their cases dismissed so long as they complete their program. Their program includes completing at least five Narcotics Anonymous meetings a week, attending group counseling sessions and regular drug testing. Failure to successfully complete any of these tasks may lead to prison time and disqualification from the program.
