Wellness Court

The RSIC Tribal Court has two wellness court grant positions that are fundamental to participants by offering positive reinforcement and wisdom within their family and community. These two staff members help participants of the judicial system succeed as expeditiously as possible.

When a participant decides to commit to the Wellness Court program, he/she undertakes life changes that are distinct from a way of life that caused him/her to be involved in the judicial system. By showing them another alternative way of life, their lives and our community grows by becoming alcohol-and drug-free, which is a common goal throughout many Native communities as well as at the RSIC.
