Screening is conducted in the early stages of Drug Treatment Court and typically precedes assessment and other diagnostic activities.
After the Defense Attorney completes all necessary documents required by the program and files a petition, he or she reviews the case to decide if the prospective participant meets predetermined eligibility requirements.
The District Attorney then refers the candidate to the Drug Treatment Court Coordinator for further screening. The Drug Treatment Court Coordinator uses assessment tools to complete the screening process.
After the screening is completed, the entire Drug Treatment Court team uses information gathered during screening to vote on admission of the candidate to the program.
