The 16th Judicial Circuit Court DWI/Sobriety Treatment Court is dedicated to helping address alcohol dependence by recurring drinking and driving offenders. Our goal is to provide an intensive but rewarding opportunity to end the cycle of alcohol abuse, promote long-term sobriety, and, in doing so, not only protect the community but improve the quality of life for our participants.
