The Chief Deputy Attorney General of the State of Montana, Jon Bennion, was in Missoula on Thursday to add his voice of approval for the new DUI Treatment Court starting in Missoula Justice Court.

“These treatment courts are very important for addressing substance abuse across the state and want to make sure we know there is support here to get out the message that we need to expand treatment courts around the state, and to see where we can expand capacity,” said Bennion. “We’re trying to address substance abuse disorders from a comprehensive standpoint, and treatment courts can be a very important part of that solution.”
