Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2002, $500,000)
The Napa County Health and Human Services Agency will use grant funds to implement a post-adjudication juvenile drug court program. The goals of this drug court are to expand the county's current juvenile drug court pilot effort and help these minors break their patterns of addiction and negative behavior. This rural drug court will serve approximately 100 clients and 100 family members over the three year grant. The program will be a minimum of 12 months of treatment followed by an aftercare component. Upon completion of the program, clients may have their record expunged. The program consists of intensive judicial supervision, sanctions and incentives, and frequent mandatory drug testing. The drug court will collaborate with the Humane Society pet therapy, Parks and Recreation, and Job Build.
