Where were drug courts first created and why?

Section I. Discussion

The emergence of drug courts illustrates how the judiciary is responding both to increases in caseload and changes in the types of cases being brought to court. In the mid-1980s, drug caseloads increased dramatically in courts throughout the country.

Rather than viewing these defendants as criminals, they saw them as persons with an aIDiction problem. Drug courts emphasize treatment.
