The Hamilton County Drug Court was established in 2010 and is one of several problem-solving court models available in Indiana. Problem-solving courts are a non-adversarial alternative to traditional criminal justice system processing and procedures. Our drug court consists of two program tracks; a traditional track that services a multitude of clients and charges and an Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) Track that is designed specifically for clients with this type of offense.
The Hamilton County Drug Court unites resources of our community in an intensive supervision and treatment program for non-violent drug addicted and drug dependent defendants. Drug Court participants have the opportunity and incentive to learn personal responsibility, achieve long term sobriety, and enhance their social, vocational and academic skills. The holistic approach of the Court promotes public safety, reduces criminal justice costs, reduces jail overcrowding and empowers participants to become productive members of our community with the use of evidenced based practices.
