May is National Drug Court Month!

Celebrating National Drug Court Month: Criminal Justice in Action

This May, drug courts and other treatment courts throughout the state will join over 2,900 such

courts nationwide in celebrating National Drug Court Month. By May 31, thousands of individuals

who entered the criminal justice system addicted to drugs and facing incarceration will receive lifesaving

treatment and the chance to repair their lives, reconnect with their families and find long term

recovery. Treatment courts are now considered the foundation of criminal justice reform and

the most effective strategy to reduce substance abuse, crime and recidivism while saving money for

taxpayers. The time has come to expand these programs so they reach every seriously addicted

individual who comes into contact with the justice system.  Learn more at www.allrise.org
