DUI and possible alternatives to jail?

In today’s society, Driving Under the Influence arrests have been on the rise and many individuals are being sent to jail instead of given treatment for their addictions. Recently, a panel in Delaware County has been studying and investigating possible alternatives to jail.

The panel is looking into creating a DUI treatment court that would target DUI individuals that needed treatment and that were considered non-violent offenders for possible alternatives to jail. This proposed DUI court would emulate the mental health courts and Veterans Courts that Delaware County already has in existence.
