Iowa, like many other states, has a program called drug court which is available to many drug offenders. It is intended to reduce recidivism of offenders who have committed crimes due to substance abuse problems. It has shown to accomplish this well as well as having many other benefits:
- Less harm to the drug offenders and their families,
- Huge savings in tax revenue compared to incarceration
- Increased the productivity of substance addicts
- and of course the main goal of reduced recidivism
- In Iowa, this may be called a Diversion Program
Who is Eligible for Drug Court?
Generally, it is up to the State/Prosecutor to determine if someone is eligible for drug court, but two important factors they consider are the age and criminal history of the offender.
