Established in 2007, the Foundation was developed to support local sobriety courts in meeting the needs of its participants.
Sobriety Courts partner with local treatment agencies and other community resources to provide participants with intensive treatment and holistic services to achieve and maintain sobriety.
The mission of the Ingham County Treatment Courts Foundation is to promote, through financial support and citizen awareness, the benefits of a successful, corrective, interdisciplinary treatment program.
