Wayne County’s Supervised Treatment for Alcohol and Narcotic Dependency (STAND) project proposes to enhance and improve policies, procedures and evidence-based treatment services. The goals of this project are to 1) enhance substance use treatment services and its effectiveness by improving access to care; 2) enhance support services to meet the needs of STAND participants and their families; 3) improve the wellness, health, and quality of life of STAND participants during and after program completion; 4) enhance knowledge of the Juvenile Drug Treatment Court (JDTC) team to transition to a trauma-informed team, secure prosecutors representation assigned to the STAND Program, and provide training on the STAND JDTC model for all new members; and 5) enhance support for participants by implementing a peer mentoring component. The STAND Program strategy is to establish its core components: coordination, intake and assessment, case management, judicial supervision, and substance abuse treatment in accordance with JDCT guidelines, reflected by successfully transitioning evidence into practice.
