The Forsyth County DUI Court is dedicated to changing behavior targeting offenders who are alcohol dependent and currently charged with a DUI having one or more prior DUI arrest(s).
Specialized DUI Courts are a proven method of effectively address community struggles with habitual DUI offenders. It’s modeled after the highly successful Drug Court concept, having a graduated sanction/reward structure and following specific Guiding Principles. Furthermore, it adds element within the court such as mandatory counseling, case management,drug and alcohol testing, and community supervision. Statistics from operational DUI Courts show that recidivism decreases substantially after completing the highest level of accountability. Participants are twenty percent less likely to re-offend.
