New Leaf Program
The New Leaf Program is a 16 to 24-month drug court program certified by the Ohio Supreme Court Specialized Docket Section. Upon entering the program, the participant will meet with the Honorable Carolyn J. Paschke regularly to discuss and evaluate progress, participation and achievements, and be supported by a Treatment Team of professionals who will assist the participant in all phases of treatment and recovery. Successful participation in the New Leaf Program eliminates the cost of prison, substantially decreases or eliminates the amount of time spent in jail and reduces the likelihood of future crime/incarceration.
The New Leaf Program has been recognized as one of ten mentor courts out of more than 4,000 treatment courts across the nation. Mentor courts are chosen based on a rigorous peer-review process and a thorough examination of practices and documentation. Being a mentor court means being a leader and a role model.
