The Allen Superior Court Drug Court Program is a free-standing Problem-Solving Court Program that promotes abstinence, recovery, lasting change and community safety through a coordinated response to offenders who abuse and/or meet criteria for a substance use disorder of alcohol and/or other drugs. The Program combines alcohol and drug prevention and/or treatment with the structure and authority of the judiciary by connecting drug court participants to a broad range of services and other necessary treatment interventions. The Program takes an innovative non-traditional holistic collaborative approach to prevention and/or treatment within the judicial system in an effort to prevent, curtail, or end the abuse of alcohol or other drug use as well as criminal activity associated with it or triggered by it.
