Drug Court

The Adult Drug Court (ADC) program is an intensive 3 phase treatment program that lasts a minimum of 12 months. The ADC program provides intensive supervision for participants with a history of alcohol and/or substance abuse. The emphasis of the program is to change the behavior of the participant, hold the participant accountable, and to improve the integrity, honesty and respect to our community.
