The Victorian Drug Court is a division of the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria that provides for the sentencing and supervision of the treatment of offenders with a drug and/or alcohol dependency who have committed an offence under the influence of drugs or alcohol or to support a drug or alcohol habit.
The Victorian Drug Court initiative is a response to the failure of traditional criminal justice measures to adequately address drug use and related offending. The Victorian model has attempted to incorporate the best features of existing drug courts in order to establish a unique program addressing the specific needs of Victoria.
