Abstract: The program aims to keep low-level offenders who have drug problems from crowding the courts and the jails. The program is a joint effort among the Placer County Courts, the Placer County District Attorney, the Placer County Adult System of Care, the Public Defender's Office, the Placer County Sheriff's Department, and the Placer County Probation Department. Each of the three tracks is designed for drug-addicted defendants who are facing charges related to drug use. Defendants plead guilty to charges and enter an appropriate program of drug treatment. Tracks I and II are deferred entry-of-judgment programs. Charges are dismissed following the individual's successful completion of the contract. Track III is a pilot project. It is a post-sentencing program; participants enter it as an alternative sentence to jail. Guidelines and program forms
