The mission of the Drug Court of Douglas County is to reduce recidivism of individuals with substance use disorder who are in the criminal justice system by offering community treatment and a therapeutic court setting.


  • Reduce recidivism among Drug Court participants.
  • Promote and enhance public safety.
  • Provide accountability and alternatives to incarceration for those with substance use disorders.
  • Engage the community in the recovery process through education and awareness of the addiction cycle.

By working together, the Team provides the participants with long-term treatment, judicial oversight, consistent, supportive supervision, objective measures of abstinence, and recovery skills necessary to maintain a substance-free lifestyle. The Team hopes to provide an alternative to incarceration that positively affects the participants and strengthens their family and the community.
