Specialty Courts:

The Specialty Courts, of the Piedmont Judicial Circuit that consists of Barrow, Jackson, and Banks counties and under the supervision of Superior Court, are composed of two courts - felony drug court and mental health treatment court. Both courts' goal is to reduce recidivism through structured cost effective programs. The felony drug court provides a non-traditional approach to working with criminal offenders by offering a judicially supervised intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment program instead of incarceration. The mental health treatment court provides an alternative to incarceration by working with offenders and having them follow a closely monitored personalized treatment plan for their mental health and substance abuse issues.
