Pennsylvania Drug Court

Information on Pennsylvania’s Drug Court Program

Drug Court Programs were created for people with substance abuse problems who have been arrested or charged with drug possession. They typically combine mandatory drug testing, substance abuse treatment, and judicial supervision to help people get off drugs and out of the criminal justice system.

The drug treatment program is an alternative to going to prison with the goal of helping drug abusers stay sober.

If you were charged with a drug crime, you should talk to an experienced drug lawyer as soon as possible. Call our Pittsburgh Drug Lawyer Attorney Christopher Thomas today for a free legal consultation.

ALLEGHENY COUNTY DRUG TREATMENT COURT PROGRAM

In existence since 1998, the Allegheny County Drug Court Program places individuals with drug abuse problems into an intensive drug treatment program as an alternative to incarceration.

Once a person is deemed eligible, they must plead guilty to all related charges.

The average sentence is 23 months followed by six months of probation. Depending on the individual’s progress, the sentence could be shortened at the discretion of the judge.

Pittsburgh Drug Attorneys Making A Difference

The Pittsburgh Drug Lawyers at SMA Law Group believe that people are inherently good. But good people make mistakes and some are falsely accused. A harsh punishment is rarely productive for anyone.

Defendants also have families who bear the burden of their loved one being sentenced to jail and losing their job or their license. Many people need treatment programs, not harsh sentencing, especially when entire families are at stake.

Our aggressive drug attorneys are here to guide you through a difficult time.

Everyone has unique situations and we take the time to listen to your story and fully understand the situation so that we can do everything possible to defend your rights.
