Evaluation Workshop 2012

 

Argentina Opens its First Drug Treatment Court with OAS Support.

Salta, Argentina. October, 2013

Argentina opened in October, 2013 in the province of Salta the first Drug Treatment Court (DTC) in the country, in a pilot program developed with the support of the Organization of American States (OAS) through the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission (CICAD). The South American country joined the United States, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Canada, Chile, Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Panama, Colombia, the Bahamas and Barbados, among others, in the use of this model for the treatment of drug-related crimes.

The DTC opened in the Distrito Judicial del Centro de la Provincia, through the Fifth Circuit Court of Guarantees and the Magistrate's Court of the Second Nomination in Transition. These courts will provide alternative criminal proceedings within the justice system for drug dependent offenders.

The Court of Justice of Salta established that those offenders charged with suspended sentences pending evidence they suffer from an addiction and who have committed a misdemeanor may enter the program. Their participation will be voluntary and under court supervision. Treatment will continue for the time for which they had agreed to suspend the sentence and, if successful, the sentence will be erased. The duration of treatment may be extended within pre-established limits. Continue...
