How long is the Felony Drug Court Program?
There are two tracks of treatment in the Felony Drug Court Program. Which track the participant will follow is decided prior to the entry of their plea into the Felony Drug Court Program since the track is based on legal and clinical recommendations. Track 1 is 17 to 24 months long; Track 2 is a minimum of 12 months long. Regardless of the track, there are five phases that a participant must go through in order to complete the Felony Drug Court Program. Each phase is based on a minimum amount of time, but a phase may take more time if your counselor recommends you stay in a phase for longer or if you violate the rules of the program.
