The Circuit Court has two problem-solving courts:

In Montgomery County, Adult Drug Court is a collaborative partnership between the Montgomery County Circuit Court, other law enforcement agencies, the health treatment system, and program participants to end the cycle of addiction that leads to crime.

Montgomery County's Mental Health Court (MHC) is split between the District and Circuit Courts. MHC is a problem-solving court with a dedicated docket used to divert certain defendants who have committed crimes because of a mental illness away from prosecution and jail and into a structured, individualized program, including treatment and community services, to enable them to avoid recidivating and become productive members of the community.
