New Jersey’s Drug Court Program offers non-violent offenders who are prone to substance abuse a community treatment-based alternative to state prison. During recent years several hundred individuals annually participated in Drug Court in Union County and were required to report to Court on a weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly basis, depending upon the length of time and success within the Program.

Participants are required to submit to random drug testing, submit to unannounced home visits, report to a probation officer on a weekly basis, obtain employment or education, and participate in either inpatient or outpatient treatment, as clinically determined.
