"comprehensive drug treatment program for non-violent people charged with drug crimes"

A team approach is used in both the Pinellas and Hillsborough County Courts. Hernando, Pasco and Polk County also offer alternative and Deferred Prosecution Programs. The Programs are a court-supervised, comprehensive drug treatment program for non-violent people charged with drug crimes. They are voluntary programs that use frequent appearances before the drug court judge and substance abuse rehabilitation by trained professionals. Twelve Step fellowships including Narcotics Anonymous are also encouraged and, in most instances, required. Participants will appear before the drug court judge every 30 to 45 days. Upon completion of the Program, the charges may be dismissed. 

"petition the court for a dismissal of the charges"

Some people enter the programs as a condition of probation, successful completion may result in adjudication being withheld and/or a reduced length of probation and is a 24-month program. After completion of at least one year, persons who have completed treatment, remained drug free and completed all of their requirements of Pre-Trial Intervention or probation may petition the court for a dismissal of the charges (Pre-Trial Intervention) or early termination of probation.

The Judge decides which form of treatment, based on the recommendation found within the substance abuse assessment conducted by the licensed treatment provider. Frequent judicial review hearings and drug testing are used to closely monitor the progress in treatment.
