The mission of the MC-ATAC program is to promote public safety and reduce recidivism by providing intensive treatment, supervision & judicial oversight for drug dependent individuals, who commit non-violent crimes as a result of their drug addictions, and to return sober, law-abiding citizens back into the community.

What is MC-ATAC?

In a response to Madison County’s significant growth in drug related crimes, local leaders formed a drug control strategy task force.  Through a series of public hearings, the task force discovered a need to organize a response to the growing problem.  The task force implemented a specialized court, the Madison County Assessment & Treatment Alternative Court (MC-ATAC), known as Drug Court, consisting of both intensive substance abuse treatment and court supervision.

Who is Eligible for Drug Court?

The MC-ATAC programs has 2 tracks available to individuals who have charged with a felony.  Individuals entering the MC-ATAC program will do so through a written agreement between the State’s Attorney’s office and the defense attorney.
