Emergence is seeking a Program Director to lead our Focus Treatment Court program.

Research has demonstrated that roughly 75% of the crimes committed at the state and local levels are substance-related, and it costs the taxpayers about $96 per day to house someone in the county jail. Treatment court is the most successful evidence-based alternative to mass incarceration, and the cost to taxpayers of providing treatment and supervision is only $9 per day. Treatment court saves lives, saves families, and saves the taxpayers money.
