"A Chance to Change"
The District Criminal Courts founded Travis County Adult Drug Diversion Court in August 1993. It was the first and continues to be the only Drug Court of its kind in Travis County.
Drug Courts are viewed as an alternative non-traditional court. It seeks a non-adversarial court approach regarding cases assigned to its court.Based upon this approach, Drug Courts represent the combined efforts of the justice system, treatment professionals, and social services entities to intervene and break the cycle of substance abuse, addiction, and crime.
