The Family Drug Court Team will use grant funds to implement a family drug court that will target nonviolent adults in the abuse and neglect system who are substance abusers and also are criminal offenders. The primary goal is to provide coordinated judicial and treatment interventions that produce sober parents and create stability for children in a timely manner. The program will serve 240 clients over 3 years. Clients are expected to participate in the program for a minimum of 12-18 months. The drug court will provide intensive judicial supervision, treatment, mandatory drug testing, graduated sanctions, aftercare and other rehabilitative services. Additionally, a management information system will be utilized to monitor client progress and to conduct process and outcome evaluations. The program will provide collateral services such as housing, transportation, mental and primary health care, employment and educational services. The Family Drug Court will coordinate its efforts with the following agencies: Gateway Community College, the Office of the Legal Defender, Arizona Department of Economic Security, the Office of the Attorney General and Terros Behavioral Health Services.
