Adult Drug Treatment Court
A Drug Treatment Court (DTC) uses a team of court and community professionals to help ensure that North Carolina's offenders who are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, receive the intensive treatment they need to become healthy, law abiding and productive family and community members. Adult DTC works with non-violent, repeat offenders who are facing jail/prison time.

The goals of the adult DTC program are:
  1. To reduce alcoholism and other drug dependencies among offenders;
  2. To reduce recidivism;
  3. To reduce the drug-related court workload;
  4. To increase the personal, familial, and societal accountability of offenders; and
  5. To promote effective interaction and use of resources among criminal justice personnel.
