Drug & HOPE Courts

The Lincoln County Drug Court, which started in 2006, is a problem solving court that uses an evidence-based approach to break the cycle of addiction, thereby reducing crime and saving lives and families.

The Lincoln County HOPE Court (which stands for Help and Opportunity through Probation with Enforcement) operates in a similar manner to Drug Court, except the focus is on property offenders whose crimes are driven by addiction, with a core goal of paying victim restitution.
