Pheffer Amato Joins Queens Treatment Court on 20th Anniversary

Assembly Member Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-South Queens) joined Judge Hirsch and the Queens Treatment Court staff in celebrating the 20th Anniversary of its drug treatment court. According to the NYC Courts website there are nine drug courts in New York City. Drug courts were created as a partnership between the courts, prosecutors, law enforcement, defense bar and treatment and education providers. Each drug court places nonviolent, drug-addicted offenders into treatment in an effort to break the cycle of drug abuse, addiction, crime, and jail.
