Community Justice Services

Recovery, health and growth is possible at every stage of life. Wheeler's Community Justice Services provide the programming, support and resources you and your loved ones need to remain safely in your community. We work closely with the courts, and referral sources, including probation and parole, and Wheeler offers substance use and behavioral health outpatient, education, and intervention services in convenient community settings. Most of our Community Justice programs are court-referred.
