The Washington County Adult Drug Court Mission Statement

The mission of the Washington County Adult Drug Court is to change people's lives, break the cycle of addiction, reunite families and promote community safety.

The Washington County Adult Drug Court is a criminal court program designed for some of the county's most seriously drug-involved offenders. Judge Eric Butterfield administers the Adult Drug Court program and is a collaborative effort between the Washington County District Attorney's Office, the Washington County Probation Department, the Washington County Sheriff's Department, The Department of Human Services, the Public Defender's Office, and Washington County treatment community and treatment programs.

Since its inception in 2005, the Washington County Drug Court Program has graduated over 200 participants and paid back more than $120,000 in restitution to victims. The participants and graduates have had over 2,534 months (over 211 years) in state prison sentences deferred, and over 423 months (over 35 years) in county jail sentences deferred.  With incarceration costs between $84.00 and $88.00 per person per day, the Washington County Drug Court has saved roughly $7 million in Oregon tax dollars.
