Mission Statement of Mohave County Adult Drug Court Program:

The Mohave County Probation Adult Drug Court, seeks to connect defendants who suffer from a substantial substance abuse problem to appropriate treatment services in the community in order to enhance public safety, reduce recidivism, and to find appropriate dispositions to the criminal charges by taking into consideration the individual's substance abuse problem, mental and physical health, and the seriousness of the offense.

Who Can Be Involved in the Mohave County Adult Drug Court Program?
This program is reserved for non-violent probationers who have been determined to have drug problems.  Participants enter the program post-conviction.  Upon acceptance, they will be required to participate in the program and comply with all Adult Drug Court conditions. Successful completion and graduation from the program may result in early termination of probation, unsupervised probation, and/or possible designation of undesignated felony charge(s) as misdemeanor(s).

What is the Mohave County Adult Drug Court Program?
The Mohave County Adult Drug Court, utilizes a non-traditional judicial approach for working with probationers who demonstrate criminality related to substance abuse. The Adult Drug Court attempts to address and remedy the participants underlying substance abuse instead of only focusing on the crime and punishment.

The minimum duration of Drug Court is twelve months, and includes four phases.  There is a non-adversarial courtroom atmosphere where a judge, probation staff, attorneys, and treatment providers work as a team toward the common goal of breaking the cycle of addiction and criminal behavior.  Adult Drug Court participants have access to a variety of treatment and rehabilitation services, e.g., residential treatment, intensive outpatient, relapse prevention, individual sessions and recovery residences.  Probation funding of treatment is subject to availability and an evaluation of the probationer's financial status, including determination of whether they are AHCCCS eligible. 

If you have any questions or any issues regarding Drug Court please feel free to contact the Probation Department at (928) 753-0741 and ask for a Drug Court Officer.
