Do you know Hamilton is getting a drug court?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

Auckland and Waitakere already have the courts, now Justice Minister Andrew Little has announced one for Hamilton.

"It's not like any court you have ever experienced before," Alcohol and Drug Community Support Trust director Stephen King has previously said. "It's almost like a quasi therapy, but it does have the power of the district court judge there."

Drug and Alcohol Court for Hamilton

Jamie Neighbourly Lead from Chartwell

Great to see an announcement from Minister Andrew Little this morning that Hamilton will be receiving a Drug and Alcohol Court.

These courts make a real difference to people: within two years court participants are 23% less likely to reoffend for any offence, and 35% less likely to reoffend for a serious offence.
