Judge and Gavel


The Clark County Recovery Court has the following goals:

  1. Reduce recidivism rates for nonviolent offenders in the program and increase public safety.

  2. Reduce prison and jail populations by diverting nonviolent offenders to community-based interventions.

Clark County Recovery Court provides individuals the opportunity to change life circumstances and become alcohol and drug free.  This is accomplished by comprehensive assessment and treatment (chemical and mental health), intensive supervision, random drug and breath testing, regular court appearances and immediate sanctions and incentives.  Other components of the abstinence-based program include: assessment for participation in other programming such as cognitive learning groups and/or mental health interventions, required participation in community support groups, obtainment of employment or pursuit of education, participation in pro-social activities.  Honesty and individual accountability are at the foundation of the program.

Clark County Recovery Court Court fully integrates evidence-based practices in its delivery of services and works in collaboration with community providers for chemical health and ancillary services.  Cognitive behavioral programming and enhanced mental health services are inherent pieces of the program.  The program is a minimum of 14 months and is divided into five major phases.  Movement through phases is based on accomplishment of goals and requirements.  

By providing coordinated substance abuse interventions with judicial oversight, the likelihood of re-arrest for any offense decreases, resulting in safer communities and reduction in crime.
