Welcome to the Idaho Drug Court And Mental Health Court Family

As a new coordinator you occupy a critically important position in the problem-solving court system. You are in some ways the “hub” around which the multi-disciplinary team wheel turns. There are many important functions you are called upon to carry out. Over the next few months you will become an expert in many areas.
