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 proposed project will provide for ongoing program operation and for enhancement of and expansion of services provided through the Rosebud Youth Wellness Court (Wellness Court). The Wellness Court is implemented within the Children's Court division of the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Court. The program will continue to integrate the principles of juvenile justice and youth alcohol and drug treatment through the provision of judicial supervision and treatment services which are provided and coordinated by the two on-site Wellness Court Counselors.
