The costs of incarceration are skyrocketing. The Pew Society recently found that 1 in 100 adults are behind bars (for an overview of their study click HERE).
States are now looking to alternatives to incarceration. Drug Courts have become a legitimate option to help rehabilitate persons without the costs of incarceration. Most counties in Arkansas have a drug court program available. Each jurisdiction has a different approach to drug court. It is important to speak with your attorney and the drug court staff so that you understand all the rules and requirements.
The benefits of drug court programs include:
- Dismissal of record, sealing of record, or greatly reduced penalties.
- Intense drug rehabilitation and counseling.
- Requirement that participants become employed and productive citizens.
