Drug Court is not for everyone! Mental Health Court may very well be the best option for those with drug related mental health issues that land them up on the wrong side of the law.

"Batavia Drug Court has slowly incorporated a new aspect into its 10-year-old program, one that will officially be celebrated in March.

Batavia Mental Health Treatment Court, which has been in operation for about three months, will meet the needs of criminal defendants with mental health issues, said Nicole Desmond, Drug Court coordinator.

Drug Court has been helping people with mental health problems, beginning with two participants were referred to the program by officials at Batavia Veteran's Administration. The two graduated from Drug Court in October.

Drug Court began in 1999 and was solely for non-violent felony drug and alcohol offenders.



About 300 people have graduated from the program.

Desmond is planning a March 23 opening ceremony at Batavia City Court to honor those participating in the new aspect of Drug Court."
