PHILOSOPHY AND MISSION
The Recovery Court of Sumner County has a simple mission: do whatever it takes to facilitate lasting recovery for individuals with addiction issues, so they can become responsible citizens. There is no question that the effects of addiction do not just harm the addict – far too often, families and communities are left to deal with the devastating consequences of substance abuse. That is why we go beyond simply making offenders accountable for their actions – we also give them the tools and education regarding their disease to help break the cycle of addiction and make the lifestyle changes that lead to long term recovery. We facilitate lasting behavioral changes through intensive supervision, treatment, and education that will reduce recidivism and create safer communities.
