Drug Treatment Court
Drug Treatment Courts are specially designed dockets that attempt to reduce recidivism and substance abuse among nonviolent substance-abusing offenders. This is accomplished by early, continuous and intense judicial supervision coupled with mandatory drug testing and the use of appropriate sanctions.
The Genesee County Drug Courts consist of several program divisions. These include Adult Felony Drug Court, Family Dependency Treatment Court and Juvenile Drug Court. The Adult Felony Drug Court is grant funded through the Michigan Office of Drug Control Policy and the Michigan Supreme Court. The Family Dependency Treatment Court is funded through the Michigan Supreme Court. Both grants include a local Genesee County match. The Juvenile Drug Court currently operates as a pilot program.
