Fact Sheet: Building Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care for Drug Court Participants

Drug Courts make it possible for participants to begin a recovery journey that will hopefully last a lifetime. Their long-term recovery will benefit them, their families, and their communities. Over 23 million Americans are in recovery and each sustains his or her recovery in the communities where he or she lives and works (Rondo & Feliz, 2012). Professionals and recovery community members have been partnering to create a supportive environment that connects participants with a broader, community-based system of services and support, bridging the gap between the treatment and recovery communities.
