Rutherford County Drug Court Becomes Recovery Services

The Rutherford County Recovery Court Program consists of two programs: The Drug Court and The DUI Court. In the Drug Court and DUI Court, we identify people involved with the court system who are violating the law because of their addiction. They are then court-ordered into the program, which consists of long-term treatment, random drug screens, and judicial supervision. It is our hope that we will break the cycle of addiction and crime thereby reducing the rearrest and reincarceration rates in our county.

There are now drug courts in every judicial district in the State of Tennessee. Rutherford County should be proud that their drug court has been named a Mentor Court by the State of Tennessee.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Rutherford County Recovery Court Programs is to reduce the length and use of incarceration, reduce the recidivism rate of crimes related to substance abuse and alcoholism and improve the safety and quality of life in our community by utilizing an innovative, efficient, integrated model of services.
