First Judicial District Treatment Court
The mission of the First Judicial District Treatment Court is to improve the overall quality of life in our community by providing a court supervised program for substance dependent offenders that will enhance public safety, reduce crime, foster healthy families, hold offenders accountable, reduce costs to our community and ultimately transform these offenders into positive, contributing members of our community.
The First Judicial District Treatment Court is a court-supervised, comprehensive treatment program for non-violent offenders. The court is a voluntary program that includes regular court appearances before the treatment court judge. Treatment includes individual and group counseling and regular attendance at self help meetings, provided through community based treatment providers. The treatment staff will also assist with obtaining education and skills assessments and will provide referrals for vocational training, education and/or job placement services. The program length, determined by each participant’s progress, will be no less than one year.
