QUESTION
Leonard Kuentz, assistant public defender in Baltimore City, has raised the following issue:
Iím interested in whether there is an official position regarding the appropriateness of requiring NA meetings as a
condition of drug court participation.
1. Does your drug court require participants to attend AA/NA meetings as a condition of drug court participation?
2. If yes, (a) how many meetings are required per week?
(b) what sanctions are imposed for non-attendance?
3. If AA/NA participation is required, are there alternatives for persons who donít wish to participate in AA/NA?
If so, what are these alternatives?
4. If there are no alternatives, have any legal challenges been made to the requirement of NA/AA attendance? If
so, what has been the outcome (please provide the case citation)?
