Why Do We Need Drug Court?

The connection between drug addiction and crime is supported by numerous statistics. 60-85 percent of all crimes at the state and local level are drug-related, committed by individuals who test positive for drug use at the time of arrest.

The cycle of drug use and criminality cannot be broken under the current revolving door system, where those arrested for drugs are continually going in and out of the criminal justice system, unexposed to treatment.

This system is extremely expensive for the taxpayer and does not work since recidivism is quite high on these kinds of cases.
