Incarceration rates continue to climb in America and many of those put in jail have a substance abuse problem.  What if we could help these people by providing treatment and support and returning them back to society as productive citizens? Drug Court can do that.

Drug Court isn't where all those charged with a drug crime go.  It's a specific court where eligible drug-addicted persons may be sent instead of to the traditional court situation.

Drug Court is more like a boot camp with stringent restrictions and parameters for what must be done or its back to jail.

Substance Abuse 411 chats with Christopher Deutsch, Director of Communications for the National Association of Drug Court Professionals about the Drug Court movement and the exciting new facet to the program, Veterans Drug Court and how Drug Courts are making a difference.
