Drug treatment courts reduce recidivism and substance misuse and increase the likelihood of rehabilitation and recovery.

In Maine, drug treatment courts are special programs that utilize intensive judicial monitoring; specialized treatment, frequent and random drug testing, case management services, alongside other needed services including housing, employment, and health care. Clients are referred to the program by defense attorneys, district attorneys, judges, jail staff, family members, and themselves. Successful clients participate for a minimum of one year, at the end of which they will complete an agreed upon sentence. Any jail time is typically served prior to beginning the program.

This metric tracks the number of Mainers admitted and not admitted into the Maine Pre-Trial Adult Drug Treatment Court program. It also tracks the number of individuals that graduated from the program.

This metric is an indicator of individuals connected to services through the Pre-Trial Adult Drug Treatment Court program. This data is provided by Maine PreTrial Services to the Office of Behavioral Health. It is updated quarterly.

Maine is increasing access to recovery resources through supporting and promoting community recovery centers throughout the state.

A key strategy in the State of Maine’s Opioid Response Strategic Action Plan is to support local and regional community engagement efforts. Through the Maine Recovery Hub, the state of Maine supports the growth and sustainability of Recovery Community Centers throughout the state. In 2020 the number of Centers increased from 9 to 13 locations. Two additional Centers are planned to open shortly in York County as well as the town of Lincoln.
