The Kootenai County Juvenile Drug Court will use grant funds to implement a juvenile drug court in Kootenai County for nonviolent, substance abusing, male and female, juvenile offenders. The drug court program will serve 100 juveniles and 50 family members in a 12 month post-adjudicatory program over a three-year grant period. The principal objectives of this program are to reduce substance abuse, increase school performance, reduce rearrests, and provide education to participants' families. Drug court services will include regular judicial supervision, intensive treatment, a schedule of incentives and sanctions, and frequent mandatory drug testing. The Kootenai County Juvenile Drug Court will incorporate collateral services such as education, mentorship, mental and primary health care, and employment. An independent evaluator will conduct process and outcome evaluations to gauge program effectiveness. The grant recipient will coordinate the drug court effort with the following agencies or offices: Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Kootenai Business Education Partnership, Apple Corps Volunteer Mentor Program, Coeur d'Alene Recreation Department, and the School Plus Program.
