General

My bond has a condition to contact Drug Diversion Court. What will happen when I call?

When you call the Drug Diversion Court office, you will receive information regarding your case status which may require an office appointment to determine program appropriateness.

Eligibility

Am I eligible for Drug Diversion Court?

If you were arrested in Travis County for a felony drug-related offense a full review of your criminal history will occur through the District Attorney’s Office. If you are deemed legally eligible for the program, you are required to complete an assessment to determine clinical appropriateness as well.

Note on eligibility: Any defendant who is interested in entering the program, but does not meet the legal eligibility, should have their attorney contact the District Attorney’s Office.

If the clinical assessment indicates alcohol is the primary drug of choice, you will not be considered appropriate for the program.

Next Steps

What happens next if I’m eligible for Drug Diversion Court?

An appointment is scheduled to provide you with program information and the clinical assessment will take place.

After the assessment, if you are clinically eligible, you will be given a court appearance date and time. The Judge will either accept or deny each case for program admission.
