Drug courts are alternatives to incarceration for individuals with substance use and mental health disorders. In drug courts, judges, prosecutors, treatment providers, defense attorneys, probation and law enforcement officers work together to help those struggling with substance use and mental health disorders receive the treatment they need to achieve lasting recovery.
