Tarrant County DIRECT Court Program
Drug Impact Rehabilitation Enhanced Comprehensive Treatment

The DIRECT Court Program is a post-plea felony probation offered through CSCD, not a diversion program.  Potential participants must meet both legal and clinical criteria in order to transfer their case into the DIRECT Court Program.  

The DIRECT Court Program offers offenders intensive treatment with intensive supervision which is judicially supervised.  Following a substance abuse evaluation, the participants enter into a highly-structured treatment program tailored to meet individual needs.  

Participants enter into treatment and are required to attend all therapeutic rehabilitative activities.  Attendance is monitored by Community Supervision Officers assigned to the DIRECT Court Program.  Urinalysis drug testing and hair testing are conducted at regular, frequent intervals.  Sanctions are imposed for violations of program guidelines and conditions of supervision.

Community Supervision Officers assigned to the DIRECT Court Program meet with the participants regularly in the office and conduct field visits.  Participants are required to attend court sessions monthly in their assigned DIRECT Court.
