We were again fortunate to have the Attorney General, Eric Schmitt, come to Springfield as our guest to the Opioid and Addiction Awareness Summit at Missouri State University. Not only was he the closing speaker at the Summit but he joined Better Life in Recovery in the Recovery Awareness walk to Hammonds Field. Once there, AG Schmitt, threw out the first pitch to the Springfield Cardinals game!!!!
"According to the National Institute of Justice, restorative justice recognizes that a crime has been committed but uses a more subjective understanding of the harm done and the unique circumstances of the offender" - Lubitz & Ross, 2001.
Diversion is a part of Restorative Justice that allows first-time offenders to be dealt with outside the court system and avoid getting a criminal record, while still taking responsibility for their offense.
Moral Reconation Therapy – MRT® combines education, group and individual counseling, and structured exercises designed to foster moral development. It is an evidence based practice that is a key part of diversion and restorative justice.
We work with Pre-Trial Services to assist in giving those that are incarcerated a chance to be in a Recovery Program. This is program that provides housing, treatment, case management, peer services as an alternative to incarceration. Talk to your pretrial officer about this program.
