The Court Referral Officer Program is coordinated by the Administrative Office of Courts and provides substance abuse professionals who attend sessions of circuit, district, juvenile, and municipal courts. These individuals evaluate defendants for alcohol/drug problems, make recommendations to judges to refer the defendants to appropriate community resources. They also drug test and monitor the defendants for compliance with court orders.
CROs use the Operational Screening Criteria, developed by the Administrative Office of Courts, as the guide for evaluation and referring defendants. Referrals are made to alcohol/drug education and treatment programs.
