New Jersey is consistently working to fight against the drug addiction epidemic that has plagued the nation. One way they have chosen to do so is through a program known as drug court. This is a program made available to people convicted of drug-related offenses that aims to rehabilitate them of their substance abuse issue.
Not all offenders of drug-related crimes are accepted into drug court. When considering a person for drug court, New Jersey will take into consideration their criminal history. Most of the people accepted have either no criminal history or a maybe one or two very insignificant charges. However, multiple offenders of criminal convictions are seen to have a high chance of committing another drug-related crime down the road.
When you are accepted into a drug court program, you are going to be regularly monitored by a healthcare professional, given random regular drug tests, and will likely have to participate in support meetings. This program has been very successful for New Jersey and its participants. Many people have gone through drug court and come out on the other side ready to turn a new leaf and beat their drug addiction once and for all. If you have been arrested for a drug-related criminal offense in New Jersey and are offered the opportunity to participate in drug court, by all means, take that opportunity and get as much out of it as you can. This can change your life for the better. If you need strong legal representation after a drug-related arrest, contact an experienced attorney today for assistance.
