The Waukesha County OWI Treatment Court (OTC) provides intensive supervision and case management of third and fourth offense drunk drivers post conviction with intensive judicial oversight. There is an emphasis on treatment in an effort to help offenders break the cycle of drunk driving, improve the chances of a sober and healthy life and contribute to a safe community. It was the first OWI treatment court in Wisconsin. The program is based on a drug court model, which has 10 key components that WCS integrates and follows. The drug court model has been around since 1989 when the first drug court was established in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
The mission of the Waukesha County OTC is to protect the public by reducing recidivism among OWI offenders through intense supervision and treatment.
