Drug Courts: The Most Efficient Alternative to Incarceration

Who?

Problem Solving court connects nonviolent, chemically dependent offenders with recovery services and court personnel.

What?

An intense, court-supervised outpatient procedure utilizing various treatment approaches and a non-adversarial court room to help our participants lead happy, successful, drug & alcohol free lives.

When?

The process takes no shorter than 14 months, with the average participant participating in the program between 16-24 months. Court occurs every week; however, as participants continue in the program, they will be required to attend court less. Living life in recovery, however, is a 24/7 process.

Where?

Court Sessions are held at the Ada County Courthouse at 200 W Front St Boise ID 83702. Treatment services are offered at 400 N. Benjamin Lane Boise, ID 83704

Why?

Problem Solving Courts offer a cost-effective, holistic approach to chemically dependent offenders. Problem Solving Courts save money, they save lives, and they help build a stronger community. The program is mandated by the Idaho Drug Court Act and overseen by the Supreme Court of Idaho.
