Inspired by Judge Greg Mathis’ own gang-to-gavel story, “Judge Mathis” is the Daytime Emmy® Award-winning nationally syndicated, reality-based court show presided over by former Detroit-area District Court Judge Greg Mathis. The show won the prestigious Daytime Emmy® Award in 2018 for Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program.
“Judge Mathis” is more than just a courtroom television show, it is saving lives of addicts in the Chicago area and nationwide. The litigants who appear on the show often struggle with alcohol addiction, substance use, and mental health disorders. “Judge Mathis” has partnered with Banyan Treatment Centers to offer the show’s litigants the opportunity to enter a drug and alcohol treatment at one of their facilities. Drug and alcohol treatment at a Banyan rehab center may include medically monitored detoxification and residential care to outpatient services, all covered by “Judge Mathis”.
Times have been extremely tough with the onslaught of COVID-19 as the healthcare community continues to fight the ongoing Opioid epidemic in addition to the pandemic. The struggle of addiction is real and the more resources people have available to them, the better the chances of a positive outcome. Judge Greg Mathis and the producing team at “Judge Mathis” understand the importance of decriminalization. By partnering with Banyan Treatment Centers, “Judge Mathis” has made addiction treatment available to its litigants and has offered them an opportunity to receive professional help and create a better life for themselves.
