Drug Courts in New Jersey

Let Our East Brunswick and Freehold Drug Crime Lawyer Advocate for You

When you are arrested for a non-violent drug crime in New Jersey, your case may be handled in a drug court, which is an alternative to incarceration. Drug courts instead focus on the treatment and rehabilitation of the defendant. Many recognize the cost-effectiveness and benefits of drug courts, which is why New Jersey continues to use this option for many drug crime offenders.

If your case goes through drug courts, you will be provided treatment services shortly after your arrest and at little to no cost to you in a supervised setting. If you want to ensure your drug offense goes through drug courts or need counsel through the process, call the Law Offices of Ryan E. Gilbert, LLC. As a seasoned East Brunswick drug crime lawyer, I can help you pursue a favorable outcome.

Who Is Eligible for Drug Courts?

Any adult charged with a crime that may involve jail or prison time could be eligible. Even individuals charged with criminal offenses motivated by drug addiction may have their case handled by drug courts.

The following steps are involved before your case will go this route:

  • You must undergo a legal review
  • A clinical assessment by drug court personnel must be completed
  • Your criminal history and record will be assessed (repeat and violent offenders are often excluded)

If your case is approved to go through the drug courts, you could get the help you need rather than be sent to jail or face additional penalties.

What to Expect in the Drug Court Program

Once you are accepted into drug court, you will undergo a clinically driven treatment program. Typically, this program will last around 12 to 24 months.

You may also be required to do the following:

  • Attend treatment sessions
  • Go through random drug testing
  • Regularly meet with your probation officer
  • Appear before drug court judge whenever necessary
