THE STORY:

It's National Drug Court Month and we want to raise money to help support our local courts!!

What is Drug Court?
A court where addicted people receive life changing treatment and accountability; instead of indifference they are shown compassion, instead of judgment, they are given assistance, instead of punishment, they are provided a passport to recovery. Delta County operates two separate treatment courts: The Family Dependency Treatment Court and the Adult Treatment Court, both of which are supported by Drug Free Delta County and various community agencies throughout Delta County.

DRUG COURTS SAVE MONEY!!
FACT: Nationwide, for every $1.00 invested in Drug Court, taxpayers save as much as $3.36 in avoided criminal justice costs alone.

FACT: When considering other cost offsets such as savings from reduced victimization and health care service utilization, studies have shown benefits range up to $27 for every $1 invested.

FACT: Drug Courts produce cost savings ranging from $3,000 to $13,000 per client. These cost savings reflect reduced prison costs, reduced revolving-door arrests and trials, and reduced victimization.

FACT: In 2007, for every Federal dollar invested in Drug Court, $9.00 was leveraged in state funding.

DRUG COURTS RESTORE FAMILIES!!!
FACT: Parents in Family Drug Court are twice as likely to go to treatment and complete it.

FACT: Children of Family Drug Court participants spend significantly less time in out-of-home placements such as foster care.

FACT: Family re-unification rates are 50% higher for Family Drug Court participants.

Delta County needs your help in raising money to continue to support the treatment courts and families in recovery.
