Specialty Court Services

BHN is also the forensic service provider for the Springfield District Court’s Recovery With Justice (RWJ) specialty court. This program works to reduce recidivism and increase diversion from incarceration for qualified offenders as a path to mental health recovery. A subset of offenders in RWJ qualify for MISSION-CREST, a case management and peer support program for individuals with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders who wish to return to productive community living while in recovery from acute illness and addiction.
