The court is based on the Ten Key Components for Drug Courts best practice approach and the main components are: intensive court supervision, case management, more immediate access to treatment, and a comprehensive system of rewards and sanctions.
All individuals entering the courthouse will need to pass security screening. There are no weapons or hazardous materials allowed in the courthouse. All handheld and carry items will be subject to inspection.
