Door County to get drug treatment court

State funding will give Door County a long-desired and much-needed drug treatment court.  Door County will receive $140,000 for an adult drug court from the Wisconsin Department of Justice.  Door County District Attorney Colleen Nordin says such a program can succeed while other approaches have had, at best, limited success.

 

 

Door County Sheriff Tammy Sternard says having an adult drug treatment court will complement existing alternatives to incarceration.

 

Such treatment and diversion programs are aimed at non-violent offenders with substance abuse issues.  Sheriff Sternard says that saves taxpayers money by freeing up bed space for those convicted of more serious offenses.
