Phish Frontman Trey Anastasio Visits Capitol Hill to Support Drug Courts and Calls on Congress to Put a Drug Court Within Reach of Every American in Need
Date:5/7/2009

ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Trey Anastasio, lead singer of the rock band Phish and proud Drug Court graduate, visited Capitol Hill on Wednesday, May 6, to participate in a day-long celebration marking the 20th Anniversary of Drug Court.

Mr. Anastasio joined the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) in calling for a Drug Court within reach of every American in need. Mr. Anastasio recognized over fifteen members of Congress for their support of Drug Court in the Fiscal Year (FY) '09 appropriations process.

In the evening Mr. Anastasio attended an NADCP 20th Anniversary of Drug Court reception.

Drug Courts are the nation's most successful strategy for dealing with drug-addicted offenders. In the twenty years since the first Drug Court was initiated in Miami-Dade, Florida, Drug Courts have revolutionized the justice system and saved the lives of over 1 million people.

Drug Courts annually serve over 120,000 people and a recent study funded by the Department of Justice showed that Drug Courts save $3.36 for every $1.00 invested. This savings is due in part to the fact that 75% of Drug Court graduates are never arrested again. Still, Drug Courts serve only about 5% of the adult offender population estimated to
