Scottsbluff County Nebraska has instituted a “post sentence” DWI court, the first in the State of Nebraska.
The goal of the court, like its drug court counterparts, is to get people enrolled in alcohol and/or drug treatment programs, mental health counseling as needed, and regular participation in Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous programs.

A “post sentence” court is one that operates after a judge sentences a person convicted of DWI. It is not a program of diversion, but rather an alternative to strict punishment by allowing individuals to participate in programs and still be monitored closely by the DWI court.
