TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Some court services have found a new home, meaning more space to help the community.

Employees say the move had to happen. That's because their previous one-room office didn't have enough space. Now, the groups have 2,500 square feet to grow into.

Case Manager Mallory Pugh shares, "Everyone's got individual offices which helps with confidentiality with our appointments, and just being able to expand. We're really, we're just really excited about everything. We've got a lot of really great things planned."

Pugh says the move is a great opportunity for employee and client expansion.

She says, "We're not just here to get them sober for 18 or 24 months. We're here to help them achieve their sobriety long-term. We get them into treatment services, sober living if they need that, if they need any help getting into any other ancillary programs, education, employment, those are the things that we help them achieve."

An open house is planned for March 15th. It’ll take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
