Description:

Drug courts employ a multi-phased treatment process, generally divided into a stabilization phase, an intensive treatment phase, and a transition phase to increase the personal, familial and societal accountability of offenders.

The Adult Drug Court program is a two-year program. It consists of 4 phases: the Pre-contemplation Phase, Contemplation Phase, Preparation/Action Phase and the Maintenance Phase. Clients are promoted through the phases based on their recovery progress culminating in graduation. Sessions are two to four times per week. Individual and gender specific sessions are also provided. Clients must also attend at least two outside meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous per week. The Drug Court Judge conducts status hearings weekly to review the progress of the clients.

The goals of the Rapides Parish Drug Court program are as follows:
reduce alcoholism and drug abuse and dependency among offenders;
reduce criminal recidivism;
reduce the alcohol and drug related work load of the courts;
increase the personal, familial and societal accountability of offenders;
