Our Work with Drug Court
The Savannah-Chatham County Drug Court encourages and promotes personal responsibility by holding participants accountable for their actions. Participants must go through intensive outpatient treatment and attend regular Drug Court sessions and community based support meetings as directed by the court and their treatment providers. Participants appear before the Judge each week, submit to weekly drug and alcohol testing, maintain full-time employment or attend school full-time, support their families (including any court ordered child support payments), pay $1500 in Drug Court fees, and complete 80 hours of community service. The typical Drug Court participant will be a part of the program for at least two years.
