Delaware Courts have partnered with the Bridge Clinic of the Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH) to provide substance use disorder and mental health screenings, treatment referrals, and more!
Program participants are placed on a “fast track” court calendar that connects them to treatment through an on-site peer specialist. The average time for a defendant to move from the Justice of the Peace to the Court of Common Please was between 60-90 days. The “fast track” has reduced the length of this process to about two to three weeks.
