What is a Reentry Drug Court?

Reentry Drug Courts utilize the Drug Court model, as defined in the 10 Key Components, to facilitate the reintegration of drug-involved offenders into the community upon their release from local or state correctional facilities. These are distinct from "Reentry Courts" (see below) which do not necessarily utilize the Drug Court model or focus on drug-addicted offenders, but often do work with similar populations. The offender is involved in
regular judicial monitoring, intensive treatment, community supervision, and drug testing. Participants are provided with specialized ancillary services needed for successful reentry into the community (Tauber & Huddleston, 1999).
