Sobriety courts or Drug Courts is a recent novel approach and
have been set up to reduce DUI/DWI s by helping recovery of offenders
instead of punishment. Their main objective(s) being to reduce alcohol & drug use, lowering of repeat substance abuse offenses and reduction
of incarceration in local jails.
Working under a “Jail Diversion” initiative, these Courts allow the integration of
alcohol and drug treatment services with justice system case processing wherein the
defense attorney and prosecutor work towards a speedy resolution of the case with an
ultimate goal of addressing the defendant’s substance abuse issues. The process
involves the following pertinent steps:
• Placement of the defendant rapidly into meaningful substance abuse transitional
sober living facility.
• Frequent testing to determine whether the defendant is using alcohol or other drugs.
• A team approach to the defendant’s treatment program including the judge, the
treatment provider, probation, and the lawyers, as needed.
• Regular appearances of the defendant before the judge, on the record, to monitor
The services provided by Structured Living LLC are an ideal fit for the DUI/DWI
candidates that qualify under the above guidelines. Our “zero” tolerance and court
friendly rules of stay that include random drug testing, curfew and daily
monitoring, implemented through a resident house manager plus a supervisor, provide
a practical and an economically preferred sentencing option to the criminal justice
system for non violent alcohol & drug related offenses.
To quote Craig Yaldoo, the director of the Office of Drug Control Policy:-
“In a collective effort to better realize the full promise and potential of drug
treatment courts, Michigan intends to enlarge the capacity of existing drug courts,
and establish new drug courts so that more people will benefit. With each new court,
Michigan has a greater opportunity to employ a preferred multifaceted approach to
dealing with drug use and crime.”
