The Franklin County Family Drug Treatment Court (FCFDTC) program has planned a 5-phase treatment model designed to transition the
caregiver from alcohol and other drug use or dependencies to successful recovery. Therapy will be provided using evidence-based programs and licensed or licensed eligible therapists. Each phase of the program has specific elements and program criteria that must be completed prior to moving to the next phase. They will plan to involve 10 families the first year, 15 the second year and 20 the third year in this program.  Accountability will be maintained throughout the program through scheduled and random drug tests, meetings with various partners and weekly court appearances.
