Addiction Treatment Program for Court-Involved Individuals

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) is conducting a program in select counties providing addiction treatment to individuals who are offenders within the criminal justice system, eligible to participate in MAT drug court, and with dependence on opioids, alcohol or both. The Addiction Treatment Program (ATP) was legislatively established in Section 337.70 of the 2018/2019 State Budget and $16 million was appropriated. Currently, specialty-docket drug courts in 31 counties are included in the program: Allen, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Columbiana, Coshocton, Cuyahoga, Franklin, Gallia, Hamilton, Hardin, Hocking, Jackson, Lake, Lorain, Lucas, Mahoning, Marion, Medina, Mercer, Montgomery, Muskingum, Ottawa, Richland, Ross, Stark, Summit, Trumbull, Tuscarawas, Union, and Warren. These counties are conducting drug court programs certified by the Supreme Court of Ohio. Treatment of eligible adult offenders will be provided by a community addiction services provider certified by OhioMHAS.
