A closer look at drug court in Missouri

Many people who commit drug-related crimes in Missouri do so because they are struggling from drug addiction, themselves. If you count yourself among them, you may be able to avoid having to serve time behind bars by doing something that can also help you kick your addiction for good. At Frank, Juengel & Radefeld, Attorneys at Law, we understand that if you meet certain eligibility requirements, you may be able to enroll in drug court as an alternative to spending time in jail. While drug courts hold you accountable for your actions, they also provide you with important resources you can use to help abstain from drug use moving forward.

Per, attending drug court in St. Louis County requires following a strict compliance plan with regard to treatment, probation requirements and the drug court judge’s orders. Typically, by enrolling in the program, you are agreeing to undergo periodic drug testing and participate in any number of other efforts aimed at helping you improve your life.

You may, for example, have to participate in various educational or vocational programs, or you may need to attend trainings or seminars intended to help you develop your life or problem-solving skills. You may, too, need to undergo mental health counseling or agree to specified housing arrangements, such as sober living, during or following your participation in drug court.

Just how long does St. Louis County’s drug court program last? Ultimately, the length of time you have to spend in drug court will depend largely on the progress you make in the program, but everyone who enrolls must remain in court for at least 15 months.
