Supporting Courts by Creating Opportunities for Recovery
Supporting Courts by Creating Opportunities for Recovery is a nonprofit organization working to empower participants and alumni of the 4th Judicial Problem Solving Courts to thrive in life by connecting them to resources and services such as food, clothing, transportation, and housing assistance
Support services and resources are essential for meeting the basic needs of individuals who struggle with addiction, trauma and mental health. By facilitating stability, we help participants remain committed to focusing on their sobriety, completing treatment, and successfully graduating from the problem-solving court program so they can achieve long-term stability and thrive as members of our community.
We are a nonprofit organization created to empower participants and alumni of the 4th Judicial Problem Solving Courts to thrive in life by connecting them to resources and services such as food, clothing, transportation, and housing assistance.
We envision a future where persons moving through the court system have the support and services necessary to maintain sobriety and become rehabilitated and thriving members of society rather than falling back into the cycle of incarceration.

PROBLEM SOLVING COURTS
AT A GLANCE
Problem-solving courts are an innovative response to address specific needs and problems of offenders that were not or could not be adequately addressed in traditional courts, such as addiction, mental illness, and domestic violence.
Problem-solving courts seek to promote outcomes that will benefit not only the offender but the victim and society as well. In the 4th Judicial District (El Paso and Teller Counties) we have six problem-solving courts:
- Recovery Court
- Adult Criminal Drug Court
- Healthy Engaged and Sober Living Court – HEALS Intensive Drug Court
- Veteran Trauma Court
- Domestic Violence Court
- Driving Under the Influence Court
- Child Support Court – Responsible Parent Program
- Family Treatment Drug Court
Problem-solving court models have shown by a growing body of research to be an effective means of reducing substance abuse, managing mental illness, and increasing the likelihood that people will remain in recovery and reintegrate into their communities as productive and contributing members. Studies of established programs also demonstrate that they reduce jail and prison costs.
