Kansas Court Ordered Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers

Kansas residents who have been charged with a drug-related crime often have the opportunity to attend court-ordered treatment in place of serving jail time. These programs are designed to get individuals the help they need and to set them on the path to a healthy and crime-free life.

The abuse of drugs and alcohol is a significant problem for residents of the state of Kansas. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 50,000 people in this state were abusing alcohol or drugs in 2007.

In many cases, people who abuse controlled substances encounter legal problems and may be arrested. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports that more than one-third of males who have at least two arrests were abusing drugs in the past year. More than half of men in the same demographic were abusing alcohol in the past year. When the court believes that drugs and alcohol have played a role in a crime or are a threat to anyone’s safety, court-ordered substance abuse treatment may be mandated.

What is Court-Ordered Treatment?

Court-ordered substance abuse treatment programs are treatment programs you must attend if a judge orders you to do so. Court-ordered treatment is often part of the sentence for a person who commits a crime related to alcohol or drugs. It may also be offered as an alternative to a more serious consequence, such as jail time. In other cases, you may be required to enter court-ordered substance abuse treatment if a concerned friend or family member convinces the court that treatment is necessary.

A court-ordered treatment program will typically be similar to a voluntary program. It may include a variety of treatment modalities designed to help you overcome your addiction, including individual counseling, group therapy, and detoxification. However, when you are enrolled in court-ordered treatment, you must attend all treatment sessions. If you discontinue treatment, you may face legal consequences.

Court-ordered treatment programs may be inpatient or outpatient, depending on your preferences and/or the requirements of the court. If you enroll in an inpatient treatment program, you will be required to remain in the treatment facility until the program is complete. With outpatient treatment, however, you will be permitted to leave the facility when you are not engaged in activities related to treatment.
