Treatment Court Advisory Board

The Board consists of partners who work with specialty dockets in Richland County which include Alcohol or Drug (AOD) Court, Mental Health Court and Veterans Court. These special courts link offenders who would ordinarily be prison-bound to long-term community-based treatment as an alternative to incarceration. They rely on assessments, individualized treatment plans, and ongoing judicial monitoring to address both the needs of offenders and public safety concerns of communities.
