The Butler County Court of Common Pleas currently incorporates three Specialty Courts: SAMI Court, C.D.A.T (Drug Court), and the FNS Docket. These Courts are designed to not only identify specific offender needs, but will assist the offender in a continued growth to become a productive member of society. While issues of substance abuse, mental illness, and the collection of court ordered child support will be addressed, these Courts also serve the community in an attempt to reduce recidivism. The Specialty Courts work as a collaborative effort between the Judges, Magistrates, the Adult Probation Department, Job and Family Services, the Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA), Community Behavioral Health/Mental Health Services, Sojourner Recovery Services, and the SOS Hall.
