The Collier County Veterans Court program coordinates mental health and substance use services for adults with former military service who suffer from a military-related mental illness, traumatic brain injury or substance use disorder and have been arrested for a criminal offense. The goal of Veterans Court is to provide veterans with effective treatment and rehabilitation as well as alternatives to incarceration, so they will have the skills necessary to maintain a drug-and alcohol-free life, abide by the law, and establish positive and productive relationships with their families, their employers and their community. Any veteran with a history of military service regardless of their discharge status is eligible for evaluation into the program.

David Lawrence Centers Deferred Prosecution Programs provide substance use and mental health intervention and education programs for adults who have been referred by Collier County Probation. The programs are designed to divert individuals from the criminal justice system.

The Adult Drug Court Program diverts offenders with substance use and drug related criminal activity from the criminal justice system by offering them an opportunity to proactively deal with their dependence rather than face punitive alternatives.
