Problem Solving Courts

Problem Solving Courts are specialized courts in the United States designed to address the underlying causes of criminal behavior and reduce recidivism. These courts offer alternatives to traditional criminal justice proceedings, focusing on treatment, rehabilitation, and support services for defendants struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues. The Problem Solving Courts website provided by the Colorado State Courts provides information about the various types of Problem Solving Courts, including Drug Courts, DUI Courts, Mental Health Courts, and Veterans Courts. The site includes resources for participants, family members, and service providers, as well as data and research on the effectiveness of Problem Solving Courts in reducing recidivism and promoting recovery.
