CREATING SAFER AND STRONGER COMMUNITIES THROUGH
EVIDENCE-BASED RECOVERY PROGRAMS.
Recovery court is an alternative sentencing program that gives local, non-violent offenders with addiction issues the opportunity to complete an intensive two-year, court-supervised recovery program.
The Recovery Court of Sumner County has a simple mission: do whatever it takes to facilitate recovery for individuals with addictions to drugs and alcohol so they can become responsible citizens.
