The collaborative will allow eligible individuals to receive treatment and recovery support services as part of a court collaborative.

SAMHSA is restricting eligibility to operational individual misdemeanor or felony adult criminal courts, municipal courts, or tribal/state or local governmental proxies who may apply on their behalf.
