Drug court programs funded by the Enhancing Adult Drug Court Services, Coordination, and Treatment Grant Program are required by law to target nonviolent criminal offenders.
The 15th Circuit Solicitor's Office will use the enhancing adult drug court services, coordination, and treatment grant funds to hire a new treatment provider and evaluator which will allow more clients to be treated in the Horry and Georgetown County Drug Court Programs.
