The Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program is designed to assist states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments in developing and establishing drug courts for substance-abusing adult and juvenile offenders. Drug court programs funded by the Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program are required by law to target nonviolent offenders. The Program supports the following activities: Adult drug court implementation, Juvenile drug court implementation, Family drug court implementation, Single jurisdiction drug court enhancement, Statewide drug court enhancement, and planning efforts.

The Montgomery County Juvenile Drug Court Program's selection criteria for our target population is based on the ten key components of a Drug Court.

The program will achieve the following goals during the award period. Orient the youth and family to the Drug Court Program. Involve drug court youth in treatment/recovery process. Prepare youth for graduation from MCJDC by demonstrating the ability to recognize responsibility to the self and to the community by completing the Case Management Plan and by maintaining a minimum of three months of sobriety.
