The Court Referral Officer Program began in 1985 as a pilot program to assist judges in early identification and placement of DUI offenders as one method of reducing the devastating problem of drunk driving. Since the implementation of the Mandatory Treatment Act of 1990, Court Referral Officers have provided services to defendants in a broader spectrum of cases related to alcohol and drug use or abuse.

The goal of the court referral program is to utilize a systemic approach to assist courts in the management of cases by networking all available state and community resources to promote the education and rehabilitation of court-ordered defendants.
