The Court Services Department at Troup County offers access to several Accountability Court programs to promote the goals of crime reduction, decreased drug addiction, and mental health awareness throughout the community. Georgia’s Accountability Courts offer interventions for individuals who experience issues seeking treatment for substance abuse and/or mental health problems.
Accountability Courts drastically reduce the rates of incarceration and recidivism, decrease the burden on taxpayers, restore families, save lives, and make our communities ultimately safer. The cost of these intervention programs is far less than the cost of incarceration, and the programs enable participants the chance to rehabilitate their lives and become productive members of society. While Accountability Court programs actually save the county money, their greatest values are the ways in which these programs help individuals change and enhance their lives for the better.
