Drug Treatment Court Information (CDTC)

View website

The Calgary Drug Treatment Court has been in operation since 2007, providing the only community alternative to incarceration for non-violent drug-addicted offenders whose crimes are driven by drug addiction.

CDTC is an evidence-based program that integrates Court intervention and treatment services to end drug-driven crime and assist participants to return to family, work and community.

Our Philosophy We know that when non-violent drug-addicted offenders are provided with the right type and intensity of services, they can change their lives, and often in remarkable and transformative ways.

CDTC provides weekly Court intervention, addiction treatment, and a range of programming to address the drug addiction and change the patterns of thinking that perpetuate criminal and addictive behavior.

CDTC also works closely with community partners to meet the complex needs of our participants and reduce the many social, health, mental health, and economic barriers to sustaining a positive and productive lifestyle.
