Drug Court

The Henrico County Drug Court is a program designed to increase the likelihood of successfull rehabilitation of its participants through a combination of intensive treatment, community supervision and judicial monitoring. Each phase becomes less structured in order to ease the participants back into society.

Henrico Drug Court is reducing crime. Its integrated approach has a dramatic effect on our community by preventing the typical crimes committed by addicts – check and credit card fraud, shoplifting and other larcenies in addition to drug possession.

Drug Court is held on Fridays at 12:30 p.m., in Courtroom 4 of the Circuit Courthouse. We encourage all interested memebers of the community to attend Drug Court to see how it works.
