Macon Judicial Circuit Drug Court

Bibb County Superior Court

Serving Bibb, Peach and Crawford Counties

 

Program Overview:

The primary purpose of the Bibb County Drug Court Program is to provide a rehabilitative alternative to incarceration and/or commitment to the Department of Community Supervision for the substance abusing offender.

The program is a three-phase intervention program that involves individual, family, and group counseling; frequent and random drug testing; frequent court appearances.

The Court awards incentives for compliant behavior and imposes sanctions for negative behavior. Participants who do not comply with the rules may be moved back to a previous phase of the program, assigned community service work, or placed in temporary custody.

Successful completion of the program results in charges being dismissed from your record.
