Therapeutic Specialty Courts
District Court Therapeutic Specialty Courts
Clark County District Court offers three Therapeutic Specialty Court programs, Substance Abuse Court, Veterans Court, and Mental Health Court. Therapeutic Specialty Court programs offer treatment and other recovery support services in Clark County to help participants treat underlying substance abuse, mental health and/or co-occurring disorders while under the supervision of the court. The mission for each program is simple: help participants to get re-established in the community; improve skills and self-sufficiency; reduce cycle of addiction and crime; and help restore and reunite families.
These programs are based on 10 key components of effective drug courts outlined by the National Association of Drug Court Professionals, Therapeutic Jurisprudence and evidence-based best practices in substance abuse treatment.
