Judicial Intervention: New Jersey Drug Courts And The Goal Of Sobriety

Recovery. If you or a loved one has struggled with the terrible disease of drug or alcohol dependency, you are well aware of how precious and elusive recovery can be. The courts, the police, and even the insurance companies all seem more likely than not to serve as obstacles on your road towards sobriety. Fortunately, for addicts and their families, the New Jersey Drug Court Programs are working to decrease the burden and cost of addiction on the addict and society as a whole.

The New Jersey Judiciary describes the mission of the drug court program as one aiming to “stop the abuse of alcohol and other drugs and related criminal activity.” Drug courts are a highly specialized team process that functions within the existing Superior Court structure to address nonviolent drug related cases. The programs objective is to keep non-violent drug related offenders out of prison while providing a structured system conducive to rehabilitation and recovery.
