Connecting courts
and the community

Who are we?

We are allies. We are resources. We are friends.

Friends of Recovery, United, supports those struggling with addiction and/or mental illness as they work toward recovery through court-directed treatment programs. We serve as a resource for court-involved persons and their families while partnering with local organizations, governmental agencies and community leaders to promote the social and economic impact of drug courts.

Drug courts save lives, costs and families

75% of program graduates nationwide remain arrest-free for at least two years after program completion. Scientific evidence proves that adult drug courts reduce crime, reduce substance abuse, improve family relationships and increase earning potential.

We can be the hope
someone needs.

Our mission is powered by accountability. Problem-solving courts increase a participant’s potential for successful reintegration into the community. From court personnel to treatment providers to participants’ families, we all play a role in the progression toward hope and healing. Together, we can save lives and improve our communities, with compassion as our guide

Everyone deserves
a second chance.
