|Franklin County Drug Court Background|
The Franklin County Drug Court began in June 2005. Drug Court Offers a olution to an increasing societal problem. Participants have the oppertunity to stop using drugs, build valuable life skills, secure housing, maintain employment, and receive intensive treatment for their addiction. Drug Court targets individuals whose major life problems start with substance abuse.
The Drug Court staff works to promote recovery, stop illicit drug use and related criminal activity. Criminal activity related to drug abuse comes in many forms: burglary, vandalism, auto accidents, domestic violence, shoplifting, DUI, DWI, PI, assaults, and the list goes on and on.
Studies show that incarcerating individuals for their drug abusing life styles only removes them from their environment for short periods of time. Unless they receive meaningful and effective treatment, education, and life skills training, they return to the same destructive cycle.
The Franklin County Drug Court focuses on identifying the problem of addiction and dealing with it.
