What are treatment courts?
A treatment court is a highly intensive, hands-on program of supervised probation and rehabilitation for people addicted to drugs and alcohol. The purpose of treatment court is to help the addict recover, reduce criminal activity and return the person to a productive lifestyle. Participants to treatment courts must admit to addiction, have a non-violent criminal history and meet other conditions of the program. Each participant has been found guilty by the Judge of having committed some non-violent crime. A major requirement of treatment courts is that each participant will stop using drugs and be drug free. Drug tests are performed routinely but randomly to ensure compliance. The Judge meets with each participant weekly to hold them accountable for their actions. Persons who graduate may be entitled to have their criminal record sealed. Persons who do not graduate or meet the requirements may be sent to prison by the Judge.

Lonoke County operates two treatment courts; a drug treatment court for eligible, non-veteran participants, and a veteran’s treatment court for eligible, veteran participants.
