Brookyn Treatment Court
Welcome from the Brooklyn Treatment Court

The Brooklyn Treatment Court (BTC) offers substance abuse treatment as an alternative to incarceration for nonviolent felony and misdemeanor drug offenders arrested in Brooklyn, New York. The Brooklyn Treatment Court emerged out of the realization that criminal behavior among drug-addicted offenders often results from having to support a drug addiction, not from deep-seated criminality.
