New Jersey Drug Court is a section of the Superior Court of New Jersey that is focused on providing a collaborative, treatment-based approach to non-violent drug and alcohol offenses.
While most courts involve a judge, jury, and two legal teams, Drug Court looks at a bigger picture and includes representation from groups like substance abuse treatment providers, social service agencies, and non-profit organizations that provide relevant services.
Drug Courts are designed to help offenders address the underlying causes that got them in trouble in the first place.
In the Drug Court framework, outcomes for defendants may be much more favorable than in a traditional court setting, especially when represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney.
