The mission of the Henry County Resource Court is to provide alternatives to incarceration for citizens who are involved in the criminal justice system as a result of their mental health or drug abuse problems. The goal of the program is to decrease the criminalization of participants through early and ongoing identification and treatment, thereby reducing, recidivism, assisting participants to become productive members of the community, and enhancing public safety.
The Henry County Resource Court

with severe and persistent psychiatric disorders, many with
co-occurring substance abuse problems, who have involvement
with the criminal justice system through criminal charges
or pending criminal charges that are misdemeanor or felony
