The Brooklyn Treatment Court (BTC) is the first drug court in New York City that offers substance abuse treatment for nonviolent felony and misdemeanor drug offenders. Through court-monitored treatment for eligible defendants, the court aims to break the cycle of addiction, crime, and incarceration. BTC uses a postplea model in which defendants plead guilty to an eligible drug charge before participating in the drug court and agree to a specific jail or prison sentence to be served in the event of program failure. Upon graduation, the plea is vacated, and the case, dismissed.
