Gavel Drug Court:Treatment, Not Jail
People arrested for drug crimes often face jail time and perhaps court-ordered rehabilitation or treatment. In drug court, that’s flipped around: outpatient or residential treatment, regular check-ins with a judge, and jail time as a last resort. The program mixes criminal justice and social services in an effort to help nonviolent offenders -- and save the system money -- by keeping them from relapsing. This week, we’ll visit the drug court in Florida’s Sixth Circuit to see what happens and why it’s making a difference in participants’ lives.
