Centre County DUI Court Program

What is DUI Court?

The Centre County Adult DUI Court Program is an intensive program for individuals who need long-term, highly structured Drug/Alcohol Treatment and Intensive Supervision. 

The DUI Court Program is a specialty treatment court targeting high risk/high needs, nonviolent, repeat DUI offenders, as defined by the statutory lookback period, who are facing a mandatory minimum sentence of at least 90 days incarceration. The DUI Court Program includes a period of incarceration followed by Probation with Restrictive Conditions (PRC) as an alternative to mandatory county jail or state prison sentences. DUI Court is a non-adversarial program addressing the specific treatment and ancillary needs of individuals placed in the program, while at the same time holding Participants accountable for their actions. 

DUI Court is based on the Problem-Solving Court Model and as such it is specially designed to reduce recidivism and substance abuse in order to increase individuals’ likelihood of successful rehabilitation. Participation in DUI Court is both a privilege and an opportunity as Participants are provided access to treatment, resources and experts to help them on their journey to long-term recovery.
