New Jersey Drug Courts

Beginning in 1996, New Jersey Drug Courts have been designed to help rehabilitate alleged substance-abusing criminal offenders. Furthermore, in 2012, Governor Christie extended the then existing voluntary Drug Court program to encompass programs that would compel other drug offenders who were unlikely to address their drug/substance abuse issues to enter Drug Court. Although many people may think Drug Court is the answer to all of their legal issues, there are stringent prerequisites that must be met in order to qualify. If you have been charged with a non-violent offense and you do not have any prior convictions for violent crimes, you may be able to qualify for the Drug Court program in the state of New Jersey.
