Union County Superior Court: The Drug Court Program

The Union County Superior Court is one of several counties in New Jersey with a Drug Court program. According to guidelines of the Drug Court Manual, a defendant may be eligible for drug court under N.J.S.A. 2C:35-14 (Special Probation for prison-bound offenders) or N.J.S.A. 2C:45-1 (Ordinary Probation). Requirements include: employment, intense supervision, random and frequent drug testing, and periodic court appearances.  The duration of the Drug Court program is different for each defendant and is normally reflective of how prison exposure they were facing for the charges.

Information on the Union County Drug Court Program is listed below, for additional information regarding the Drug Court Program contact any of the team members indicated below. Applications and additional information is available in the Drug Court Unit located on the 6th floor in the Court House, Elizabeth, NJ:

Drug Court: Intensive Drug Treatment Instead of Prison

The Drug Court program is a huge break for someone facing indefinite prison but it is not to be taken lightly because a lot is expected from its participants. If you fail to meet any of the requirements of the program you can be terminated immediately and will fulfill the remainder of your time in state prison. As founding attorney, William Proetta, has successfully negotiated pleas for clients to secure their admittance into Drug Court and thereby avoid lengthy state prison sentences. If you take the program seriously and meet the requirements then the benefits are immense but just like anything else in life you get out of it what you put into it. If you are facing serious drug charges and think Drug Court may be an option for you then contact our office, conveniently located in Cranford, at (908) 838-0150.
