Treatment Courts

 

 

Treatment courts lead people with substance use and mental health disorders out of the justice system and into lives of recovery and stability. They are the most successful intervention in the justice system in our nation's history for helping people with these issues.

Jackson County Circuit Court offers two treatment courts for eligible individuals who face serious criminal charges. Recovery Opportunity Court (ROC) serves people with drug addiction. Wellness Court serves those with severe mental illness.

Successful participants receive favorable legal outcomes, such as avoiding prison. Eligibility criteria can be found in each program's brochure. Admission is determined by each treatment court team.

Each program includes a team of treatment providers, attorneys, corrections, and law enforcement. Each program has oversight by an assigned circuit court judge.

Program requirements include:

  • Substance abuse counseling and monitoring
  • Mental health treatment
  • Safe/sober housing
  • Employment or other community engagement, and
  • Frequent court appearances.

Requirements are individualized to address the needs and risk to community safety by each participant.
