Adult Drug Court
The mission of the Marin County Adult Drug Court is to improve lives that have been impacted by substance use,
and to increase public safety by reducing the amount and frequency of drug related crime. The Court aims to
reduce criminal recidivism by facilitating treatment and rehabilitation. The Court provides increased supervision
to individuals with a substance use disorder involved in the criminal justice system, thereby returning individuals
to the community better equipped to maintain their recovery and not engage in further criminal behavior.
The Adult Drug Court Team includes a judicial officer, probation officer, deputy district attorney, deputy public defender, and treatment providers who provide clinical assessments and drug and counseling services.
Participants in the Adult Drug Court are required to meet regularly with a probation officer, case manager, and assessment specialist. Participants engage in self-help meetings and substance use treatment. Participants shall submit to urine analysis tests whenever ordered to do so and shall make regular court appearances. The program consists of 4 phases, each with its own set of legal, housing, vocational, and treatment requirements. The program typically takes about 12 months to complete successfully. When a participant graduates from the Adult Drug Court he or she may have drug related charges(s) dismissed, reduced, jail sentence stayed and/or probation terminated.
