Drug & Alcohol Tests for Pretrial Intervention & Diversion
Pretrial diversion refers to any programs serving as alternatives to traditional criminal justice case processing. The aims of these programs include decreasing risk of repeat criminal behavior and conserving legal and community resources.
One type of pretrial diversion, pretrial intervention, helps reduce congestion in the criminal justice system by identifying low-risk, first-time, non-violent criminals eligible to complete community service, pay their victims restitution, and attend counseling instead of serving time in prison.
As the United States’ incarcerated population and criminal justice expenditures increase year after year, local, state, and federal leaders have realized the importance of pretrial diversion and intervention. While communities continue to adopt pretrial intervention programs, the need for accurate, court-admissible drug and alcohol tests also increases.
If you are a Pretrial Intervention Program Director, an attorney seeking diversion services for your client, or a community leader interested in bringing a pretrial diversion alternative to your area, ARCpoint Labs of Charleston can help you by facilitating reliable, legal drug and alcohol tests.
