Lockport Treatment Court - Mission Statement

"Honesty, Dedication & Commitment"

The Lockport Drug Treatment Court (LDTC) Program seeks to diminish substance abuse, crime, and recidivism through intense supervision, treatment, and judicial monitoring of Court participants. This program will attempt to end the cycle of addiction for each participant by providing a balance between therapeutic intervention and judicial accountability. The focus will be directed upon improving the personal and social aspects of each participant through linkages to appropriate programs, including substance abuse counseling, mental health counseling, educational and vocational training, housing programs, and others. The primary impact of the LDTC Program will be on participants becoming productive members of the community in all aspects of their lives, by teaching them the skills necessary to conquer their drug dependency, and ultimately, bring an end to their criminal activity.
