An Introduction to Colorado's Problem-Solving Courts

Problem-solving courts use the expertise, resources, and commitment of a multidisciplinary team of professionals to holistically respond to individuals struggling with substance use disorders and mental illness. These courts are locally designed and use a collaborative approach to match participants with appropriate levels of supervision, treatment, and support to help them overcome barriers in their journey towards recovery. This webpage has been designed by the PSC Training and Education Subcommittee to provide you with a basic understanding of what problem-solving courts are, how they work, and what you can do to support them.
