Bronx Opioid Court Gives Participants a Chance at Recovery

Once a participant completes their treatment program, their case is dismissed and sealed, according to the Law Journal.

A new program run by the Bronx Criminal Court in New York City is hoping to prioritize recovery for people charged with low-level, non-violent offenses.

The Bronx’s Overdose Avoidance and Recovery (OAR) program is just over two months old, but has so far helped 50 defendants access treatment in lieu of jail, according to the New York Law Journal.
