Judge Jennifer Elliott was honored for her 10 years of service to the Dependency Mothers Drug Court program. WestCare Nevada presented Judge Elliot a plaque at their annual graduation ceremony Sept. 19.

Judge Jennifer Elliott launched the specialty court aimed at helping moms with addiction and has been presiding over the dependency mothers’ drug court since 2008. It is a program that has helped to get many mothers away from the clutches of addiction and into the arms of their children. The legacy of what she accomplished since 2008 will carry on for generations.

WestCare Nevada provides a wide spectrum of behavioral health services including treatment for substance abuse. Their services are available to adults, children, adolescents and families.
