The goal of our King County Drug Court program is to help break the cycle of criminality and substance use and help participants develop the skills they need to live happy, healthy and productive lives.
Drug Court program participants go through a rigorous program that can take up to two years to complete. They get help for their substance use and mental health issues and have strict limits placed on their behavior. Random drug tests are performed at least twice per week. Participants meet with their counselors for individual or group counseling sessions a minimum of one to two times per week, attend sober support meetings weekly, complete community service and appear before a judge at least monthly.
Drug Court participants must be employed or in school before they can graduate from the program.
The services we provide in partnership with King County Drug Court are successful because they address the multitude of issues that can contribute to recidivism including addiction, mental illness, unemployment, behavioral problems and homelessness and help participants to develop the skills they need to be drug-free and thriving.

This is the 7th season the baseball games have been played and the clients are having a great time. We caught up with Kent more..
