Talbot County Drug Court received a proclamation on May 3 from the Talbot County Council honoring their work and proclaiming the month of May as Drug Court Month in Talbot County. Drug Courts are specially supervised court dockets that handle cases of nonviolent substance abuse, using a combination of input from the judiciary, prosecution, defense bar, probation, law enforcement, mental health, social service, and treatment communities. They are statistically proven to significantly reduce drug use and do it less expensively than any other justice strategy.
