Drug Treatment Courts
The federal and California state governments are jointly promoting the expansion of "drug treatment courts." Drug courts combine the close supervision of the judicial process with resources available through alcohol and drug-treatment services. The goals are to reduce recidivism of drug-related offenses and to create options within the criminal justice system to tailor effective and appropriate resources to offenders with drug problems. For more information, contact the Alameda County Superior Court Drug Court Services Office at (510) 272-1216.
