STOP Court

STOP Court Drug Treatment Program

What is STOP Drug Treatment Court?

STOP stands for Sanction - Treatment - Opportunity - Progress. Drug courts provide an option to those with substance abuse problems and related criminal charges. Instead of incarceration and probation, individuals have the choice of participating in intensive substance abuse treatment with frequent court appearances in which the drug court judge monitors compliance. Compared to the usual way of managing substance abuse and criminal activity, drug courts have been shown to work better at reducing criminal behavior, and they cost less!
