Adult Drug Court

Message from the Adult Drug Court Magistrate

Welcome to the Rhode Island Superior Court Adult Drug Court website. The eligibility criteria and Adult Drug Court forms are made available to encourage local attorneys and the public at large to refer potential Drug Court participants to the program. All of the forms and contracts on this website are also available for your convenience in Spanish.

Nine (9) years of continuous operation have resulted in impressive and measurable success in changing the course of many lives that may otherwise have been lost to a lifetime of drug or alcohol addiction. Responsibility and rehabilitation are essential to the court's success. Rehabilitation is achieved through adherence to prescribed clinical treatment and counseling, drug testing, and individualized services coordination. A renewed sense of self and responsibility is gained through probation contact, participation in recovery programs, and frequent court appearances.

We welcome your interest in the Rhode Island Superior Court Adult Drug Court program and proudly offer this alternative judicial intervention within the structure of the Rhode Island Superior Court.

John J. Flynn, Magistrate
Rhode Island Adult Drug Court
