South Dakota Court Ordered Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers

For those who have been caught committing a drug-related crime, a court-ordered rehabilitation program may be the best option to recover from addiction. The state of South Dakota has a wide variety of these programs available to help individuals get on the path to long-term recovery.

South Dakota Court-Ordered Treatment

In South Dakota 70,000 adults over age 12 reported alcohol or illicit drug use dependency in 2006. For a state with approximately 814,000 residents that number is staggering at nearly 10 percent of the population. One way to manage the number of people in need of treatment is to mandate court-ordered treatment for substance use and abuse. Getting professional help through the legal system might be one of the few ways these individuals receive help.

For example, this might be through a DUI program that requires treatment in order to get one’s driver’s license back. Treatment mandated through the courts range from inpatient rehabilitation to drug and alcohol evaluations. Individuals may be forced to go to therapy or counseling in order to receive treatment for their addictions.

Defining Court-Ordered Treatment For Drug/Alcohol Addiction And Abuse

Court-ordered treatment is a program that is mandated or required by the courts. In a legal situation an individual who is charged with a crime related to their drug, alcohol addiction or abuse is required to complete a treatment program in order to be exonerated from their crimes. If they are unable to complete the treatment they are likely placed in custody, aka jail, for a longer period of time. Treatment is prescribed to individuals via a court order in the hopes that the person can undergo rehabilitation. Most people who are sentenced to court-ordered treatment follow through with the program, as the alternative is jail time.
