At the JREC Community Meeting on April 17th, the Juneau Therapeutic Courts (JTC) program was the topic of discussion.  Michelle Delkettie, Program Manager, provided an overview of the JTC and the Juneau Coordinated Resources Project (CRP) programs. 

What is the Juneau Therapeutic Court?

“The Juneau Therapeutic Court is a court for misdemeanor or felony defendants who are charged with a DUI or refusal or have a history of alcohol-related offenses, and who want to overcome their addiction to alcohol and achieve lifetime sobriety.”
