Partnership with the Eugene Municipal Court
Published on Sept. 22, 2016
Willamette Family Treatment Services (WFTS) is excited to share that we have partnered with the Eugene Municipal Court who is pioneering a City Community Court. The court is held every Friday at the city library in downtown Eugene. This innovative court is focused on providing individuals who meet the court’s criteria with the opportunity to engage needed behavioral health services, rather than traditional punitive sanctions.
As a Community Court Service Provider WFTS has a connection table set up at the court each week. Daniel Jenkins, our community court liaison, welcomes participants, processes their court documents, and engages them in the admissions process at our Rapid Access Center the same day as court. With over fifty years of experience working with behavioral health issues in Eugene and Lane County, Willamette Family is very proud to partner with our community providing accessible, quality mental health and substance abuse/addiction care for men, women, youth, and families that are struggling and willing to try a new way of life.
