Wellness Court

Wellness Court is an alternative to regular criminal court that offers a supervised program designed to address the conditions that may contribute to re-offending.

Many people in the criminal justice system have issues, such as mental health problems, addictions, or cognitive challenges, that often interfere with an their ability to change their lives and stay out of jail.

Wellness Court helps offenders move beyond re-offending and successfully integrate into their communities by helping them develop a healthier life. This gives people a chance to change while still holding them accountable for their behavior.
