• BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN COMMUNITY AND TREATMENT COURTS•
Larimer Court Support, Inc. (LCS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that directly supports the clients in the Problem Solving Courts in Larimer County, Colorado. We are committed to treatment and encourage positive lifestyles for the current and past clients who are living in recovery.
The problem solving courts were started with the goals of improving outcomes, lowering taxpayer costs, and stopping the revolving door of the court systems for participants and their families. The courts are often a "last resort" for repeat offenders who have a substance abuse and/or mental health component who need a therapy-based intensive treatment program. The programs provide a heavily structured environment with a court team-based approach who meet weekly to discuss the best course of action for each client. There are 5 Problem Solving Courts in Larimer County.
Adult Drug Court
Juvenile Drug Court
DUI Recovery Court
Problem solving courts demand rigorous accountability from their participants including:
Screening prior to acceptance
Frequent appearances in court
Monitoring for substance abuse
Intensive, integrated treatment plans
Individualized case plans combined with frequent judicial oversight empowers clients to engage in treatment and take responsibility for their own success.
LCS is an additional resource for these clients to bridge the gap between the them and the community. By the request of the court teams, we provide items and services needed for clients that the courts cannot provide. We help with donated goods such as: work clothes, work boots, bikes for transportation, furniture for a new place, books and clothing for children of the clients. We also assist with haircuts, eye glasses, and sober recreation events. In addition, we provide the courts with incentive reward cards to hand out to clients who are progressing well through the program.
