North Central Problem-Solving Court Graduation and Celebration

The North Central Problem-Solving Court team would like to announce a graduation ceremony.

WHO:

Judge Kale Burdick, Host Judge for the North Central Problem-Solving Court

WHEN:        

Monday, March 22, 2021, 9:00 a.m. 

WHERE:

Holt County Courthouse - County Courtroom

WHY:            

For problem-solving court graduates, the ceremony marks the completion of an intensive program of comprehensive behavioral health treatment, intensive community supervision, and full accountability. 

Problem-solving courts are an alternate route through the criminal justice system for nonviolent drug-related offenders, which utilize a specialized team process that functions within the existing court structure. The courts are designed to reduce recidivism and substance use among individuals with substance use disorders. The court’s goal is to protect public safety and increase the participant’s likelihood of successful rehabilitation by utilizing validated risk and need assessments, early and individualized behavioral health treatment, frequent and random chemical testing, incentives, sanctions, and other rehabilitative and ancillary services.
