Drug & Alcohol Tests for Pretrial Intervention & Diversion
Pretrial diversion refers to any program serving as an alternative to traditional criminal justice case management. The aim of these programs includes reducing risks of repeated criminal behavior and offering support to legal and community services.
Pretrial Intervention (PTI) is one form of a pretrial diversion program which helps lessen the caseload in the criminal justice court system by identifying first-time, non-violent criminals who are eligible for community service, victim restitution, and outside counseling as an alternative to serving time in a correctional institution.
The United States incarcerated population continues to increase on a yearly basis, and politicians and criminal justice stakeholders have realized the importance of pretrial diversion and intervention. As a result, there is an increase in demand for error-free, acceptable drug and alcohol testing within communities that implement pretrial intervention programs.
