Maria presenting Certificate to graduates from Drugs court
The Drug Treatment Court is a judicial initiative that commenced in 2018. It is underpinned by the support and co-operation of a number of statutory and non-statutory agencies. My role
as the designated Drug Court Liaison Worker was funded by the Department of Justice in 2021.The catchment area is for people who reside in Co Louth and areas of East Meath who
are willing to engage and participate with the programme. It’s for adults over the age of 18 whose offending is considered principally motived by drug dependence. The desired
outcome is abstinence and rehabilitation for the participants to successfully graduate with no charges. Since 2022 there have 33 participants referred to the Drug Treatment Court and 13
participants successfully graduated with no charges.
