Relapse Prevention Court

The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania has developed the RPC Team to provide support and structure to participants who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction to assist them in achieving lifelong sobriety. We will connect participants with treatment, employment, educational resources, and pro-social organizations in the community. The RPC Judge will address participants’ behavior through meaningful incentives and timely sanctions. The Team, recognizing the nature of substance addiction, will treat participants with dignity and respect, to promote a rehabilitative atmosphere that empowers participants to lead law-abiding lives.
