Divert Court Program

Medicine and Justice

The Dallas Initiative for Diversion and Expedited Rehabilitation and Treatment (DIVERT Court) is a program available for Dallas County residents in efforts to enhance public safety by providing a judicially supervised regimen of treatment and innovative case management to substance abuse offenders with the goal of returning sober, law-abiding citizens to the community and thereby closing the “revolving door” to the criminal justice system.

Please contact the DIVERT Court Intake Coordinator for additional information and eligibility criteria at 214-653-5878.
