Friends to All of New Hampshire’s Drug Courts and Participants

Drug Courts offer an alternative sentencing option to defendants whose offenses are substance abuse driven. The “Friends” helps the Drug Courts provide additional financial assistance and incentives to help participants be successful. We firmly believe in our motto, “Drug Courts Work – They Transform Lives.”

“If we want to reduce crime, save money and return people to the community as contributing members, then we need to be more creative about what we do with those offenders who have drug addiction and end up recycling through our jails and prisons. Drug Court is one of those options we can use to address the addiction crisis in our state and to make our state more safe. I am thrilled that the Friends of New Hampshire Drug Courts, a committed group of active community leaders, wants to support a better way to address crime and addiction.”
