The Drug Court Program currently operates in Flagler, Putnam, St. Johns and Volusia counties. These programs serve non-violent offenders with documented histories of substance abuse. Court proceedings are conducted in Bunnell, Daytona Beach, DeLand, Palatka and St. Augustine. For further assistance, please contact the Drug Court office at (386) 943-7077.
Through an extensive supervision and treatment regimen, Drug Court programs adjudicate cases in which offenders are chronic substance abusers. Drug Courts require offenders to acknowledge their substance abuse problems and provide them with the tools and mechanisms to deal with their addictions. All of this is done in an effort to reduce or eliminate future criminal conduct. The Drug Court program uses a team approach to serve its participants. Team members include the judge, prosecutor, defense attorney, treatment specialists, supervision officers, law enforcement agencies, corrections officials and others. Once an offender successfully completes this intensive program, the Court may dismiss the charge, reduce the sentence or offer a combination of other incentives.

The Drug Testing Lab was established to lower drug testing costs and provide faster service to the Court. Volusia County Government provides funding for the lab, while revenues collected from some clients offset part of the operational costs. The workload of the lab corresponds to the number of judges and court programs who utilize its services. Presently, the lab offers testing services in cases referred by circuit and county court judges in Volusia County. Court programs such as Pretrial Services, Drug Court and Teen Court also utilize the lab’s services, as do several agencies such as Judicial Correction Services, Inc. (JCS), Community Partnership for Children, Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare and Family Renew.
The Drug Testing Lab uses state-of-the-art Enzyme Multiplied Immunoassay Techniques (EMIT) technology for its testing. This form of testing provides cost-efficient, accurate and timely test results.
