dependency or those that have been convicted of a DWI.


Parish DWI Court Teams believe the the criminal justice population has a huge

substance abuse problem (including alcohol); that is the primary factor in the

causation of crime within the 16th Judicial District of Louisiana. Court Teams

provide judicial monitoring, legal support from the District Attorney and Defense

Bar, intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment, supervision through

probation and parole, and the support of Law Enforcement with the objective of

reducing the rate of incarceration in Louisiana along with the goal of enabling

clients to free themselves of addictive disorders.
