U.S. Drug Czar Addresses 2,500 Drug Court Professionals, Voices Strong Support for Expanding Drug Courts Throughout the Nation
Date:6/11/2009

elebrate the lifesaving work of these critical programs."

There are currently 2,301 Drug Courts annually serving 120,000 people per year. Drug Courts strike the proper balance between the need to protect public safety and the need to improve public health by treating offenders involved with the criminal justice system as a result of their addiction. In doing so, Drug Courts significantly reduce drug abuse and crime and do so at less expense than any other justice strategy. Drug Courts save $3.36 for every dollar invested, and save as much as $12 when factoring in other costs offsets such as reduced victimization and reduced healthcare services.

"It is an honor for the National Association of Drug Court Professionals to welcome Director Kerlikowske to Anaheim for this tremendous gathering of dedicated public health and justice professionals," said NADCP Chief Executive Officer West Huddleston. He added, "The Director has been a champion of Drug Courts since his days in Buffalo and on behalf of the 22,000 Drug Court professionals represented by NADCP I wish to thank him for his support and for his pragmatic and comprehensive approach to drug policy. After twenty years of research and results we can now say that Drug Courts are the most successful justice intervention in our nation's history. Drug Courts work better than jails or prisons, better than probation and better than treatment alone. They are restoring lives, reuniting families and protecting public safety in communities all across this country. They are a solution to the vicious cycle of drugs and crime that has ensnared 1.2 million drug-addicted offenders in our criminal justice system. We must put a Drug Court within reach of every American in need."
