The Wallowa County Adult/DUII Treatment Court targets men and women who are 18 years or older, reside in Wallowa County, are addicted to a controlled substance and/or have two or more DUII convictions and agree to participate in the program.

The Adult Treatment Court is comprised of participants who have significant histories of criminal behavior and drug addiction.

Adult Treatment Court participants generally:

  • Have a significant history by self-report or other evidence of alcohol or other drug dependence and must meet moderate to severe DSM-5 diagnostic criteria.
  • Exhibit a likelihood that sobriety and addressing criminal behavior patterns will stop the participant’s criminal behavior.
  • Have a need for an intense level of supervision and intervention to obtain sobriety and meet medium to high level need according to LS/CMI (Level of Service/Case Management Inventory) assessment or other similar evaluation tool.
  • May have a co-occurring mental health diagnosis.
  • Have a criminal history which shows that a significant number of the individual’s crimes are related to the use of substances and the maintenance of that lifestyle.

The Wallowa County Adult/DUII Treatment Court do not have any upcoming community outreach projects scheduled at ​this time.

The Wallowa County Adult/DUII Treatment Court began in 2002. Our current program capacity is 16 participants with an average of 10. The overall operation of the Wallowa County Adult/DUII Treatment Court is based on the 10 Key Components of Drug Court and uses the Adult Drug Court Best Practice Standards.

All participants in this program are given access to a continuum of alcohol, drug and other treatment and rehabilitation services. In addition to intensive outpatient drug and alcohol treatment, the treatment team can make referrals to vocational rehabilitation, Behavioral Health therapy, Department of Human Services, inpatient treatment, and ​specialized opiate addiction therapy and MAT.
