Up next for Fifteen Days of giving, check out the Recovery Court of Sumner County!

The Recovery Court of Sumner County has a simple mission: do whatever it takes to facilitate recovery for individuals with addictions to drugs and alcohol so they can become responsible citizens. Participants are equipped with the skills and resources they need to be responsible citizens, which reduces the chance of relapse.

By connecting participants with gainful employment and educational opportunities, they are positioned to consistently pay taxes and, in many cases, child support that if incarcerated would otherwise go unpaid. As an alternative to incarceration in the county jail, recovery court helps save approximately $15,000 per year, per offender.
