The Forsyth County Adult Drug Treatment Court (DRTC) is a program offered by the court to combat the cycle of addiction and recidivism. The DRTC is a minimum of 12 months long, and provides individualized treatment and case management services for eligible defendants. This is a voluntary, court-supervised program that includes regular court appearances before the presiding DRTC Judge.
Participants of the DRTC must show a commitment to their own recovery to be accepted into the program. This entails obtaining a clinical assessment and following the recommended treatment. The DRTC team monitors every participant closely, with the goal of self-sufficiency and recovery. This is done by addressing the individualized needs of participants, close monitoring, regular drug testing, treatment, accountability, and bi-weekly appearances in court.
