Drug Court

The Bucks County Court of Common Pleas has implemented a voluntary Drug Court program for individuals who are either probation/parole violators or post-plea, pre-sentence offenders with a diagnosis of substance use disorder or a co-occurring diagnosis. The program focuses on rehabilitation from substances, as well as criminal thinking behaviors.


Who can participate?

Participants must meet the following criteria:

  • Bucks County resident

  • Individuals who have violated probation and are facing possible prison in a state facility or who are considered “pretrial;” post-plea, pre-sentence offenders with a diagnosis of a substance use disorder or a co-occurring disorder

  • No violent offenses

For participants who are probation/parole violators, successful completion of Drug Court may result in the reduction or termination of any remaining supervision. For participants in the pretrial program, after entering a plea of guilty, sentencing will be deferred pending completion of the Drug Court program.

Upon successful completion of the Drug Court - including the payment of fines, costs and restitution - the participant’s charges may be reduced, and the participant may be sentenced to non-reporting or administrative probation.
