Mission Statement

To provide the support and resources necessary for our clients to begin living sober lives and reconnect with their families, community, and culture.

Program Overview

Tulalip’s Healing to Wellness Court will offer comprehensive services in the areas of medical, mental health, and chemical dependency treatment, housing, jobs skills and placement. These services will be provided through an intensely-supervised court program of support and accountability.

Criminal defendants charged with non-violent offenses arising from drug abuse and/or mental health conditions will be eligible to participate in the Healing to Wellness Court and thereby avoid criminal prosecution. An assessment and intake interview will be conducted and an individualized treatment plan developed for each program participant.

Each participant will be supported, supervised, and held accountable to that plan by the members of the Healing to Wellness Court team: judge, prosecutor, defense attorney, coordinator, case manager, chemical dependency counselor, mental health counselor, law enforcement officer, and community member.
