North Dakota Court Ordered Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers

Many individuals who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol are often more inclined to commit a drug-related crime. North Dakota offers a variety of court-ordered substance abuse treatment centers for these individuals so they can get the help they need in order to overcome addiction and avoid committing another drug-related offense.

Throughout the state of North Dakota, drug and alcohol abuse has far-reaching consequences. In the most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 58,000 people surveyed indicated they had a problem with alcohol or illicit drug dependence or abuse over the past year. This number by itself is staggering, but when combined with the fact that people who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol are more likely to commit a crime, the problem becomes even more obvious.

According to an August 2014 report entitled Arrestee Substance Use, over half of the people who admit to having a past year dependence or abuse of alcohol have two or more arrests on their records. A full 36 percent of those who have admitted to any illicit drug dependence or abuse showed a record with two or more arrests. These statistics show a direct link between addiction and criminal arrest.

The Need for Court-Ordered Treatment in North Dakota

Because of this link, the courts will often require people who have been arrested while under the influence or on other drug- or alcohol- related charges to attend treatment for their addiction. This type of treatment is known as court-ordered treatment. Many facilities throughout North Dakota offer treatment programs that are in line with the court requirements. Arrestees who are asked to attend treatment may be given shorter sentences, earlier parole or a pretrial release if they follow through with the treatment.

Is court-ordered treatment effective? Many studies have found that it is quite effective in encouraging sobriety in those who would never have considered treatment without the mandate. The pressure created by the courts for court-ordered treatment helps ensure that the individual follows through with treatment. After all, if the individual stops treatment, the jail time or higher fees will be enforced. This accountability and legal pressure also helps promote a positive result. Also, court-ordered treatment programs follow a proven counseling plan that has shown itself to be effective. People who attend court-ordered treatment often have higher success rates than those who seek treatment on their own.
