The success of the "Drug Court Model" has led to the creation of several different types of "Therapeutic Courts" in Washington State. 

There are now (2016) at least 83 different "Therapeutic Courts" in the State of Washington, of seven  different types:  Adult Drug Courts (24); Juvenile Drug Courts (13); Family Dependency Treatment Courts (18); DUI Courts (7);, a Domestic Violence Court (DV) (1); Mental Health Courts (13); and Veterans' Treatment Courts (8).  Some are Superior courts, some are District Courts, and others are Municipal courts. 

For a description of how these courts work and the services that they provide to the community and to the participants, see the Therapeutic Court Directory, WA.
