Abstract: First paragraph: Drug Courts were initially established in the USA in the late 1980s by sentencers who were frustrated at the limited range and effectiveness of existing measures for dealing with those whose offending was related to the misuse of drugs. Drug Courts aim to reduce drug misuse and associated offending by offering treatment based options outwith the traditional court setting. Drug Courts are now also operational in a range of other jurisdictions, including Australia, Canada and Ireland.
