3 WELCOME Welcome to the 20 th Judicial Circuit Adult Drug Treatment Court (ADTC). This handbook has been designed as a resource for people who have been sentenced into the ADTC, people considering the ADTC as a probation option, and members of the criminal justice system. This handbook will provide background information about what a drug court is, insight into the operations of the ADTC, and the expectations for participants involved in the ADTC. For all those who have the opportunity to review this handbook, I hope you will find it to be a one-stop resource for any questions you may have regarding our Adult Drug Treatment Court. Sincerely, Honorable Mark A. Feyen Presiding Judge Adult Drug Treatment Court 1

4 ABOUT DRUG COURTS Over the last 20 years drug courts have emerged as the most effective program within the criminal justice system for working with adjudicated persons who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction. The first drug court opened in 1989 in Dade County, Florida. Since this time the drug court model has been replicated nationwide, and as of this writing over 2,500 drug courts are currently in operation in the United States. You may have seen different names for drug courts including: Sobriety Court, DWI Court, Drug Court, and Drug Treatment Court. However, all of these programs operate under a common set of guidelines known as the 10 Key Components of Drug Courts. These components define and guide the operations of a drug court. Steering away from traditional judicial practice, drug courts are designed to operate in a collaborative and non-adversarial manner - between both the drug court and participants, and among members of the drug court team. Effective drug courts are able to provide intensive substance abuse treatment and highly structured judicial oversight including: drug and alcohol testing, intensive case management, monitoring and supervision of a participant s home environment, and regular in-person interaction with the drug court judge. Drug courts are typically divided into three or four phases and range in length from 9 to 24 months (the length may vary per jurisdiction and is influenced by treatment services, probation guidelines, and the type and severity of substance abuse addiction among participants). The initial phases of a drug court are the most rigorous. Participants may be subject to daily drug and alcohol testing, have contact with surveillance officers at home, be required to attend 12 step meetings, undergo substance abuse treatment, and attend review hearings weekly or bi-weekly. 2

5 The intense nature of the initial phases provides participants with a high degree of accountability and a better understanding of the underlying causes and patterns of their addiction (which comes through substance abuse treatment) both of which are crucial for breaking the cycle of addiction. As participants continue in drug court the rigid requirements of the initial phases lessen. Drug and alcohol testing becomes less frequent, the interval between counseling sessions increases, and focus is directed toward seeking and maintaining employment, completing GED requirements, and resolving outstanding court and family issues. If participants are resistant to complying with the requirements of drug court, the judge may order sanctions such as community service, increased drug and alcohol testing, or jail. Likewise, if a participant is doing well, incentives are awarded and may include: phase promotions, certificates of achievement, or small tokens of recognition. Participants who successfully complete drug court will have a graduation ceremony. During the ceremony, graduates will be asked to speak about their experience in drug court, the judge may comment about the graduates progress, and drug court staff and participants celebrate the graduates successful completion of drug court. For participants who have committed themselves to sobriety and made significant positive changes in their lives, graduation from drug court is a major milestone in their lives. For more information, please refer to the website of the National Association of Drug Court Professionals: 3

6 FOR NEW PARTICIPANTS Welcome! We hope the previous section was informative and that it improved your knowledge and understanding of drug courts. The remainder of this handbook will detail the components of the ADTC, discuss our expectations of you and describe the requirements for your successful completion of the ADTC. You have been accepted into the ADTC because of your prior encounters with law enforcement and your related history with drugs and/or alcohol. Whether or not you feel you have a substance abuse problem, the choices you have made related to drug and alcohol use or decisions you have made while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol have caused you to reach the felony level of the criminal justice system and qualify you for participation in the ADTC. What you take away from your participation in the ADTC will depend upon your effort and commitment to working the program as it is known in the recovery community. At the very least, you will leave the ADTC with a much deeper understanding about the choices you make related to the use of drugs and alcohol and the consequences of those choices. We hope the ADTC will give you the tools necessary to abstain from the use of drugs and alcohol, be the start of a life dedicated to sobriety, and ultimately end your encounters with the criminal justice system. However, those decisions are yours to make. While involved in the ADTC, you will find there is a lot expected of you. The ADTC requires a minimum of 16 months to complete and is composed of four phases. In many ways the structure of the ADTC will influence the way in which you go about your daily life. However, you will also find the ADTC team is committed to supporting you and helping you succeed. 4

7 DRUG COURT TEAM The ADTC is structured in a way that integrates judicial supervision with substance abuse treatment. As a result, our team is composed of representatives from different agencies within the criminal justice system as well as substance abuse treatment agencies. The ADTC team meets bi-weekly before review hearings, to discuss participant progress and determine incentives and sanctions. Every member of the team serves a unique role and is here to help support your recovery and success. Judge Provides overall leadership for the ADTC; officiates review hearings. Coordinator Manages administrative operations of the ADTC, serves as liaison between all agencies involved in the ADTC, and processes new people to come into the ADTC. Case Manager Provides social service support to participants, monitors participant progress in the ADTC, performs drug and alcohol testing, and home visits. Probation Officer Manages the legal aspect of cases through the Michigan Department of Corrections, performs drug and alcohol testing, home visits, and investigations as necessary. Prosecuting Attorney Performs background checks on all people referred to the ADTC and collaborates with the ADTC team to determine incentives and sanctions. Defense Attorney Collaborates with the ADTC team to determine incentives and sanctions and ensure participants legal rights are protected. Substance Abuse Treatment Providers Educates and counsels participants about drug and alcohol abuse. 5

8 REVIEW HEARINGS The ADTC holds review hearings every other Friday at the Ottawa County Courthouse in Grand Haven. Review Hearings are held from 9:00am 10:30am in courtroom 3B located on the 3 rd Floor. Contact Information: Ottawa County Courthouse Adult Drug Treatment Court 414 Washington Avenue, Suite 300 Grand Haven, MI Phone: (616) Fax: (616) Review hearings last 1 to 1.5 hours depending on events to be addressed by the judge. All participants, guests, and members of the public attending a review hearing are seated in the gallery. When it s your time to appear before the bench, the judge will call your name and you may go to the front of the courtroom. The judge will speak with you for several minutes about your progress since your last review hearing. While it may seem intimidating at first, you will quickly discover that meeting with the judge is not that bad! Participants in phases 1 and 2 must attend review hearings bi-weekly. Participants in phases 3 and 4 must attend review hearings monthly, unless otherwise ordered. Family, friends, and co-workers are encouraged to attend review hearings with you. 6

9 COURTROOM ETIQUETTE The courtroom is an environment that requires a personal demonstration of respect and courtesy to the judge, court staff, participants, and guests in attendance. You must abide by the following rules: DO arrive to review hearings 5-10 minutes early. DO go to the bathroom before the review hearing begins. DO turn off cell phones and pagers. DO address the judge with respect. DO bring your 12 step meeting attendance sheet and any other paperwork as ordered by the judge or other member of the ADTC team. DO NOT leave the courtroom while the review hearing is in progress. DO NOT talk when the judge is speaking. DO NOT swear or use profane language in the courtroom. DO NOT bring food or beverages into the courtroom. DO NOT chew gum in the courtroom. DO NOT sleep in the courtroom. DO NOT wear clothing with obscene or inappropriate language, pictures, or references to drugs/alcohol. DO NOT wear clothing or colors that show gang affiliation. DO NOT wear risqué clothing (i.e., revealing shirts, blouses, excessively short shorts) tank tops, or unbuttoned shirts. DO NOT wear hats, bandanas, or sunglasses. Failure to comply with these rules may result in a sanction. 7

10 INCENTIVES & SANCTIONS Throughout your time in the ADTC you will be accountable for completing a number of different requirements. Based on your performance and progress in the ADTC you will be eligible to receive: Incentives for satisfying program requirements. Sanctions for failing to complete program requirements. Honesty is the best policy During your time in the ADTC you will be frequently reminded that being HONEST about your actions to yourself and the court is imperative for successfully completing the ADTC and managing issues with your addiction. At each review hearing you will have the opportunity to tell the judge about anything that occurred since your last review hearing. Lying to the judge (or any other member of the ADTC team) is a serious infraction and will result in a significant sanction. Incentives and sanctions have been designed by the ADTC team. Depending on the circumstances, incentives or sanctions may be awarded or imposed during a review hearing or at the time a positive or negative event occurs. The following page describes incentives and sanctions used by the ADTC. Your actions speak louder than words 8

11 INCENTIVES & SANCTIONS Types of incentives may include, but are not limited to... Verbal praise from the judge Applause Promotion to the next phase Fewer appearances at review hearings Leave review hearings early Gift card Certificate of accomplishment Graduation from the ADTC Types of sanctions may include, but are not limited to... Verbal warning from the judge Early reporting to probation officer Writing assignment Restarting your phase Increased drug/alcohol testing Curfew Jail Alternative Work Service (JAWS) Jail Termination from the ADTC 9

12 DRUG & ALCOHOL TESTING Drug and alcohol testing is an integral part of the ADTC. During your time in the ADTC you must submit to drug and alcohol tests by either urinalysis or breath. ALL TESTING is randomly scheduled and observed by probation or court personnel. Drug and alcohol testing may occur at the probation office, your place of residence, at work, or elsewhere as deemed necessary. You will be subject to varying frequencies of testing while in the ADTC. Your testing frequency will depend on the phase you are in, issues you are having with relapse, suspicion that you are using drugs or alcohol, or attempting to adulterate your urine or breath samples. The ADTC believes that drug testing is one of the best ways you can demonstrate to yourself, your family members, your employer, and the court, that you are committed to leading a lifestyle free of drugs and alcohol. Unlike traditional probation programs, you will be tested A LOT. Our modes of testing and confirmation are highly sensitive and scientifically reliable. Our testing procedures are able to detect the presence of over 20 different controlled substances, determine if urine samples are adulterated or fake, and precisely identify the substance(s) used to trigger a positive result. While some people have gone to great lengths in an effort to cheat the tests they have not succeeded. So again, we remind you Honesty is the best policy 10

13 TESTING LOCATIONS The ADTC works closely with the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC) for drug testing. Based on the location of your residence in Ottawa County and what you feel is most convenient you may choose to report to the Grand Haven or Holland MDOC office: Grand Haven MDOC & District Court Probation Holland MDOC Ottawa County Courthouse 414 Washington Ave., Room G001 Grand Haven, MI Phone: (616) Fax: (616) Weekday Testing Locations: Grand Haven (Monday-Friday) MDOC Office Dept. of Human Service Building James St., Suite 150 Holland, MI Phone: (616) Fax: (616) Holland District Court Probation Holland (Monday-Friday) MDOC Office Weekend & Holiday Testing Locations: Grand Haven (Saturday-Sunday) District Court Probation Office Holland (Saturday-Sunday) District Court Probation Office Holland District Court 85 W. 8 th St. Holland, MI

19 HOME VISIT GUIDELINES You will be monitored for drug and alcohol use at your home or workplace. Home visits are conducted randomly at any time during the day or night. It is expected that you cooperate and comply with the surveillance officer s request(s). Home visits are conducted in a professional and discreet manner so as not to draw attention to neighbors and house guests. The surveillance officer vehicle is unmarked and he/she will be dressed in plain clothes, not indicating affiliation with a court or police agency. Home visits serve as a way for the ADTC to become better acquainted with your family and assess living conditions. Expectations for home visits: Your residence must be alcohol and drug free. You must submit to PBT and drug testing. A failure to submit to testing will be treated as a positive test. If you test positive you are expected to be honest and cooperative with the surveillance officer. You will be immediately lodged in jail for a positive test. Your house/vehicle/person may be subject to search without a warrant for alcohol and other illegal substances. If you are not home when a surveillance officer comes to your home, he/she may leave a business card at the front door, follow the instructions given. Immediately call the surveillance officer when you return home leaving your name, date, and time. If you receive a phone call from a surveillance officer you must answer your phone and speak with him/her. You must provide requested information (such as your location and time of return home). If surveillance officer requests to meet you or come to your location, you must agree. When a surveillance officer comes to your home it is expected that you will be prompt in your interaction with him/her. Please stop any ongoing conversations on the phone or with another person. Most often, the visit will take only a few minutes. People living at your residence should be advised that even if you are not home, they will have to answer the door when the surveillance officer arrives. Everyone in your home, including yourself, is expected to be courteous and respectful to all surveillance officers. Before moving to a different home you must receive approval from your probation officer. You must notify the surveillance officer if you change your contact information (address, phone number). 17

20 OVERNIGHT & OUT-OF-STATE TRAVEL Requests for staying at a location other than your residence, or traveling out of state will be considered on a case-by-case basis. During phase 1, you will have a curfew of 10:00pm 6:00am unless employed during those times or excused by your probation officer for an extenuating circumstance. You must be at your residence during curfew hours. You will not have a curfew in phase 2, 3, or 4, unless ordered by the judge. With permission of your probation officer or case manager, you may be able to stay overnight at another residence, however, must still submit to a home visit if contacted by a surveillance officer. If you are not at your residence after 2:00am, and did not receive approval to be away from your residence, you will be considered to be out overnight, which is a violation. If you are staying away from your residence or traveling out of state, you must still report for drug and alcohol testing if your color is called. You may request permission to travel out of state in phase 2, 3, or 4. Your request will be reviewed by the judge on a case-by-case basis. If permitted to travel out of state, you must still submit to drug and alcohol testing. Your case manager or probation officer will advise you on how to make these arrangements. 18

21 TRANSPORTATION After reading the handbook up to this point, you have learned that you must attend a number of different appointments: review hearings, drug testing, 12 step meetings, substance abuse treatment, and community service to name a few. However, based on your criminal record, your driver s license may be suspended or revoked. The ADTC understands that meeting your requirements without being able to drive may put you in a challenging position. Recognizing this, the ADTC is able to help you in several ways: Bikes The ADTC has an inventory of refurbished bicycles that have been donated by the Ottawa County Sheriff s Department. You may request to borrow one of these bicycles from your probation officer or case manager. Bus Passes Your case manager can provide you with information on various public transportation options in Ottawa County. The ADTC case manager is able to distribute bus passes upon request. Families Victorious Families Victorious is a faith-based organization that partners with the ADTC. Led by Harry & Norine Pothoff, Families Victorious provides free rides to and from review hearings. Your case manager can connect you to this service. Ignition Interlock Depending on your criminal charge and compliance with ADTC requirements, you may be eligible to apply for a restricted driver s license with an ignition interlock device while in the ADTC. This is a special program available only to drug court participants. However, there is a significant cost for this program. You can request additional information from your case manager or probation officer. Lack of transportation is not an acceptable excuse for missing appointments. You will receive a jail sanction if caught driving on a suspended or revoked license. 19

Your case manager will work with you to ensure you are meeting program requirements, help with employment searches, monitor your progress in substance abuse treatment, work with family members, help you access social services within the community, among many other things. Contact information for your probation officer and case manager are located in the back of this handbook. 21

24 SUBSTANCE ABUSE & MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES Substance abuse treatment is a key component of the ADTC and will provide you with the critical support and education necessary to manage your addiction. The ADTC partners with four substance abuse treatment agencies: (1) Ottagan Addictions Recovery (OAR); (2) Holland Behavioral Health (HBH); (3) Pathways, MI; and (4) Ottawa County Community Mental Health (CMH). You will be able to access a continuum of treatment services including: residential treatment, Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP), group, individual, mental health, and bi-lingual/bi-cultural services, to name a few. Regardless of where you live, your work schedule, or the language you speak the ADTC will be able to place you into a program that best fits your needs. All participants in the ADTC must complete IOP. Following IOP you will transition into group or individual counseling at the discretion of your therapist. You must attend substance abuse treatment a minimum of 1 time per month. IOP Schedule: OAR Holland Mon/Tue/Thu 4pm 7pm For 6 weeks OAR Grand Haven Mon/Wed/Thu 9am 12pm For 6 weeks HBH Holland Mon/Tue/Thu 6pm 9pm For 5 weeks IOP schedules are subject to change. Participants are responsible for paying the cost of their substance abuse treatment services. The ADTC makes every effort to access public funding and other forms of financial assistance to help with these payments. If funding is available, the ADTC will assist participants in covering this expense. 22

25 COMMUNITY SERVICE You may be required to perform community service while in the ADTC. There are several different reasons for having to perform community service. Sentencing Requirement Depending on your criminal charge(s) you may, by statute, be required to perform as many as 360 hours (or more) of community service. You must complete all ordered community service to graduate from the ADTC. You will not have to begin your community service until after you complete IOP. If ordered to perform more than 360 hours of community service, you must complete a minimum of 360 hours and will work with your case manager to determine the number of additional hours of community service to be performed. Unemployed Requirement If you do not have a job, you must perform 12 hours of community service per week until employed. Sanction Requirement You may be ordered to perform community service as a sanction. If you are required to perform community service, your case manager and probation officer will help you get started. The ADTC will refer you to the Community Service Department. You will have an initial appointment with the community service coordinator to determine a work location that can accommodate your work schedule. The Community Service Department will provide you with instructions on when you must start your community service, the guidelines you must follow, and will assess a registration fee. The ADTC works closely with the Community Service Department to respond to issues as they arise and to ensure you are able to successfully complete your community service requirement. You must record your hours worked on a Community Service Log that you will regularly show to your case manager and probation officer. 23

26 JAIL ALTERNATIVE WORK SERVICE (JAWS) Jail Alternative Work Service (JAWS) is a form of community service that is performed in lieu of spending time in jail. The ADTC uses JAWS as a sanction. Depending on your compliance with ADTC requirements, you may be ordered to perform JAWS. Instead of spending time in jail, you will be assigned to a work crew and must perform community based work at a pre-determined location in Ottawa County. JAWS is ordered as a sanction during review hearings. If ordered to perform JAWS, you will not have the option of choosing the day(s) or time that you work, you must work an 7 hour day, you must complete all ordered JAWS hours before your next review hearing, and you will be assessed a registration fee. If you are ordered to complete JAWS, your case manager or probation officer will refer you to the Community Service Department. You will meet with the community service coordinator who will provide you with instructions on when and where you must perform your JAWS assignment. The ADTC works closely with the Community Service Department and will monitor your performance at JAWS. You must complete your JAWS on the day(s) you are assigned. 24

27 FINES, COSTS, AND OTHER PAYMENTS You will be responsible to pay for different expenses that result from your criminal charge, attendance at substance abuse treatment, and other fees for court services. There is no direct fee to participate in the ADTC. The ADTC understands there is a significant financial burden placed on participants that may compound other personal debts. During phase 1, your case manager will match you with a volunteer budget counselor (free of charge) to create a financial management plan that will help provide a structure to begin paying off personal debts and money owed to the court. To graduate from the ADTC, you must pay off all court ordered fines, costs, and restitution, OR have a history of making monthly payments for one year totaling 25% or $1,200, whichever is greater, toward your fines, costs, and restitution. Money owed to the court may include, but is not limited to: Fines, costs, and restitution Community service fee Substance abuse treatment Jail alternative work service fee Attorney fees Ignition interlock fee Probation supervision fee ADTC positive drug test fee It is expected that you will make regular payments toward outstanding balances with the court. If regular payments are not being made, the ADTC has the authority to garnish wages using a wage assignment. If this occurs, deductions will automatically be taken from your paycheck. Payment of fines, costs, restitution, and fees can be made to the Ottawa County Clerk s Office: (1) In person at any of the Clerk s Offices in Ottawa County; (2) By phone: (616) ; or (3) Online at: Payments can be made by cash, credit card, or money order. Personal checks are not accepted. 25

28 TERMINATION The ADTC team will make a committed and sincere effort to help you make positive changes in your life and successfully complete the ADTC. However, your success is ultimately up to you. Based on your performance, or lack thereof, you may be removed from the ADTC. Removal from the ADTC may occur under several conditions: Termination Termination from the ADTC will occur at the discretion of the judge and ADTC team. Reasons for termination include, but are not limited to: being charged with a new felony offense, absconding, or a pattern of non-compliance with ADTC requirements. If terminated from the ADTC you will be ordered to jail and must serve the remainder of your jail time as determined at sentencing. Administrative Discharge You are allowed to participate in the ADTC for up to 30 months. If at 30 months, you have not completed the requirements to graduate, and have not committed any violations that would result in your termination, you will be administratively discharged. If terminated or administratively discharged, your charge will not be reduced if previously agreed upon, you will not participate in a graduation ceremony, and you may have to continue on probation if ordered by your sentencing judge. 26

29 GRADUATION Graduation is a special event that celebrates your successful completion of the ADTC and what is hoped will be your long-term commitment to sobriety. A graduation ceremony will be held in your honor. The judge will ask you to deliver a brief speech reflecting on your experience in the ADTC, present you with a graduation certificate and a respectful celebration will be held in the courtroom. Family and friends are encouraged to attend this special occasion. Your case manager will work closely with you to determine if you are ready for graduation. To be eligible to graduate you must: Have 90 consecutive days of verified sobriety. Have completed your GED (unless otherwise ordered). Have completed all ordered community service. Have paid off all fines, costs, and restitution; or Have paid 25% or $1,200, whichever is greater, toward your fines, costs, and restitution. Have a legal source of income (unless otherwise ordered). After graduation from the ADTC you must remain on probation with the Michigan Department of Corrections for a minimum of 90 days. 27
