Drug Court: A drug court is a type of criminal justice sentence given to those who have committed nonviolent crimes as part of their addiction or it could also be used to help people with multiple addictions through the process. This means they can attend counseling sessions where they learn how to deal with any underlying issues such as emotional abuse or neglect from childhood while receiving support in their recovery journey each day at work, school, home life etcetera.\\
Mental Health Court: Mental health courts were created for individuals who need assistance managing co-occurring disorders (i.e., drug addiction and mental illness). These courts can provide people with a formal diagnosis, treatment services, education about their disorder(s), access to health care providers and medication management in an environment where they are supported by other participants who have had similar experiences.\\
Family Violence Intervention: The Family Violence Division (FVD) offers 25% of its diversion programs for family violence offenders so that victims may be spared the trauma of testifying against those close to them. FVD also provides domestic abuse intervention groups for men convicted of felony sexual assault or child molestation as well as batterer’s shelters which house both male and female abusers. \\
