The Clay County Adult Drug Court program was developed and implemented under the direction of the Fourth Judicial Circuit in 2001. The Clay County Adult Drug Court Program is a court-supervised, comprehensive treatment program for nonviolent defendants. Adult Drug Court includes regular court appearances before a designated Drug Court Judge, intensive treatment, random drug testing, individual/group counseling, family counseling and regular attendance at Sobriety Support meetings such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. Adult Drug Court is a combined effort of the State Attorney’s Office, Public Defender’s Office, the Court, the Department of Corrections and Clay Behavioral Health Center. Program participants will be assisted with obtaining education and skills assessments and will be provided referrals for vocational training, education and /or job placement services. The program length, determined by each participant’s progress will be no less than one year.
