The Chippewa County Recovery Court Program consists of three phases followed by a Continuing Care Phase. Each phase is a minimum of 4 months long and the continuing care phase will is a minimum of 6 months long. The Recovery Court Team, upon recommendation of the Recovery Court Case Manager, determines when promotion to a higher phase is appropriate. The Drug Court Case Manager completes a comprehensive Psycho social assessment on each participant. After the assessment is completed, the Recovery Court Team determines the level and location of each participant’s treatment.
A critical component of successful Recovery Court participation involves intensive supervision and random Urinalysis and Breathalyzer (UA/BA) testing to determine compliance with the rules of the Program. The frequency of the random UA/BA’s are determined by the phase each participant is in and is subject to change based on violations and the recommendation of the Treatment Team. Hair follicle tests are also completed randomly on participants.
Weekday testing occurs at the courthouse on the second floor and weekend testing is completed at the Chippewa County Jail.
