Department Functions and Services

The Drug Court program is designed to accept non-violent offenders with one or more substance abuse problems, including alcohol. Participants will be admitted post-guilty plea from Municipal, Circuit, Juvenile and District courts and must be pre-approved under the program's guidelines.  Participants are required to waive numerous constitutional rights to allow the Drug Court Judge to impose immediate consequences for violations of the Drug Court's treatment program rules. The Drug Court itself will be based in Cody, but participants may reside anywhere in Park County and limited transportation to and from treatment and court sessions will be available in certain circumstances.

Drug Court combines treatment with immediate consequences for violations and instills life skills that many defendants lack. Participants are required to attend numerous counseling sessions and to become productive members of the community by maintaining full-time employment or enrolling in school full time, by being current on all financial obligations, and by remaining clean and sober. The program lasts a minimum of one year and is a demanding substance abuse treatment regiment which takes a whole-life approach to treatment. To find out more about the Park County Drug Court, and whether you or someone you know qualifies for Drug Court's treatment program, please call 527-1800 or 754-1800.
