STOP Court

Drug Treatment Program

VOA Oregon provides addictions treatment to repeat substance abuse users who are involved in the Multnomah County STOP 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!

Random urinalysis is also a key program component.

Funding Sources: Multnomah County Department of Community Justice, U.S. Bureau of Justice Administration, Oregon Criminal Justice Commission, client fees, third-party insurance reimbursement.
