Drug courts are specialized court-docket programs that target persons (adults and juveniles) charged with a crime and not convicted, those convicted of crimes, as well as parents with pending child welfare cases who have alcohol and other drug dependency problems. Although the features of drug courts vary according to the population served, as well as the resources allocated, programs are generally managed by a multidisciplinary team that includes judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, community corrections, social workers, and treatment service professionals.
