The drug court approach differs from the approach of traditional court as an example in traditional court the court officers including defense attorneys represent and argue different sides of an issue. In drug court programs, the judge, prosecutor and public defender and law enforcement discard adversarial roles. In drug court they are members of a team dedicated to one purpose--helping younger adults (teenagers) and typical older adults (anyone over 18 yrs of age) with addiction problems. Treatment providers share in rather than direct treatment decisions.
