The Troup County D.U.I. / Drug Court is a 12 month post adjudication program. This program handles non-violent misdemeanor substance abuse cases through intensive supervision, drug treatment and rehabilitation. A rigorous program that holds its participants fully accountable for their own acts, the Troup County D.U.I. / Drug Court requires great commitment from its participants to attend frequent meetings, court appointments and routine alcohol and drug testing.
The Troup County DUI Drug Court Program consists of three phases designed to ensure that each participant receives the right amount and type of treatment throughout his or her recovery path. The first twenty weeks include a minimum of 55 to 65 hours of group and individual work. The focus of this level of intervention is to aid the participant in establishing a sound knowledge base pertaining to substance use disorders, self-diagnosis, treatment approaches, and both early and intermediate relapse prevention. The next twenty weeks include the second level of treatment which focus on supplementary work in advanced topics related to substance use disorders and advanced relapse prevention strategies. The third level of treatment takes on an “aftercare approach” and last for twelve weeks. During this phase, treatment becomes less intensive allowing the client to become more responsible, understanding and independent in the community.
