A: You cannot really give an educated answer to your situation without knowing more. The proposal you post is possible, however it depends on the prosecuting authority whether or not it is willing to do that and its willingness greatly depends on the specific facts of the arrest as well as your past criminal record. Your best best would be (1) hire a criminal defense attorney who has some drug court experience to guide you through this and (2) get some treatment whether or not it keeps you from jail time because that is best for you in the long run. Good luck.
