The Solano Adult Drug Court is for people involved in the criminal court system who have a substance use disorder. Instead of receiving a jail sentence, participants agree to court supervision, intensive case management, long-term drug treatment, and engaging in the hard work of getting well. Acceptance in this program is a long-term commitment.
