Phoenix Rising’s mission is to battle addiction by supporting local drug courts, launching yearly awareness campaigns, creating a searchable database, and hosting fundraising events to assist in funding treatment for those in need. 

Drug Court

According to the National Association of Drug Court Professionals:

• Drug courts are six times more likely to keep offenders in treatment long enough to get them better.
• 70% of offenders drop out of treatment early unless they are regularly supervised by a judge and court
• Every dollar spent on drug court saves three in criminal justice costs
• 75% of drug court graduates remain arrest-free at least two years
• Drug courts reduce crime 45% more than other sentencing options
