Rate this:
Drug Courts are an alternative to incarcerating repeat, nonviolent drug felons. In lieu of jail, addicts are mandated to receive comprehensive treatment, which often reduces recidivism. This film goes inside a drug court in South Boston, showing how the court system supervises long-term treatment for drug cases. Defendants include Joe, a heroin addict who has stolen to support his habit. He enters the Drug Court program, then relapses and skips a court hearing. Brian is another case, having entered Drug Court in a sincere attempt to escape addiction. During this process, he is able to confront his disease and get sober. Judge Robert Ziemian provides extensive commentary.
