Monday, JANUARY 28th, 2019

“Pierce County District Court Drug Addiction Reduction Team (DART) Court began in November 2016 after careful collaboration with county stakeholders to combat the opioid epidemic. The DART Court emerged to combat the opioid epidemic initially but the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) supports the initiative because research proves utilizing evidence-based practices to change behavior is more cost efficient and has better success rates at reducing recidivism than incarceration.

As of October 2018, DART has a 72.5% success rate for ALL participants going through the program sustaining law abiding behavior.”
