Las Vegas Justice Court Community Court Treatment Program Graduation July 25

 

A Community Court Treatment Program graduation and promotion celebration will take place at the Regional Justice Center, Jury Services located at 200 Lewis Ave. in downtown Las Vegas on Thursday, July 25 at 2 p.m.

 

The goal of the Las Vegas Justice Court Community Court Treatment Program is to reduce recidivism by utilizing judicial supervision of low-level misdemeanor offenders in addition to addressing quality of life needs by coordinating services that address substance use treatment, education, employment and medical and disability challenges.  Officials said that they encourage broad participation and partnership by non-profit providers, government social services, community groups and all justice partners while treating everyone with dignity and respect. The court is committed to treating everyone with dignity and respect.

 

To graduate from Community Court Treatment Program, each individual participates in the program for at least nine months while being drug and alcohol free for at least 60 days.  During that time, they will have completed their individualized treatment plans, which include participation in substance use treatment in varying levels of care including individual and group therapy sessions with randomized substance use testing. 

 

The court also assists participants with reclamation of identifying documents, and reconnection of community resources to include medical, vision, dental and mental health providers, education, employment and/or retirement/disability resources. The court encourages its participants to be of service to the community by gaining financial and housing stability, along with reconnection to family and positive support systems.

 

The court welcomes members of the community to come celebrate their accomplishments.
