The Waukesha County Drug Treatment Court Program started with the help of a three-year, $350,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) to serve non-violent, high-risk, drug dependent offenders . Entry into the Drug Treatment Court program is initiated through a binding plea agreement in a criminal case. The minimum duration of the program is 12 months, consisting of four intense phases requiring frequent, random drug and alcohol testing, substance abuse treatment, regular status hearings in front of the drug court judge, attendance at self-help meetings, frequent case management meetings, and other requirements. Upon successful completion of the Drug Treatment Court program and approval by the staffing team for graduation, the terms of the plea agreement will be executed. The mission of the Waukesha County Drug Treatment Court is to advance public safety, reduce crime, reduce costs to our community, and improve individual and community health by providing intensive, integrated, evidence-based court supervision and comprehensive treatment services for drug dependent offenders.
