Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $425,000)

Greene County proposes to expand the capacity of service delivery to its pilot juvenile drug court program by applying the Reclaiming Futures program model. Best practices in substance abuse treatment will also be integrated into the juvenile drug court program. This integrated system will improve and expand treatment services, implement a system of care to coordinate all social services, and increase community opportunities for youth and families.
Specific program goals are to 1) expand Green County's pilot project to launch a full-scale juvenile drug court for nonviolent substance-abusing youth offenders, 2) formalize and expand Green County's responses to juveniles who screen positive for AOD, and 3) develop a re-entry support program for youth completing juvenile drug court services and youth discharged from secure detention. Green County will collect and report data in support of performance measures identified by OJJDP and fully participate with the OJJDP national evaluator in collecting and reporting process, impact and baseline data.

In FY 07, through a partnership with OJJDP, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Greene County was funded to expand the capacity of service delivery to its pilot juvenile drug court program by integrating the Reclaiming Futures program model and planning efforts to include best practices in substance abuse treatment. This integrated system will improve and expand treatment services, implement a system of care to coordinate all social services, and increase community opportunities for youth and families. In partnership with CSAT, beginning in FY 08, a supplemental award will support the implementation of the treatment component. CSAT is currently providing training and technical assistance to support planning efforts for the treatment services. Greene County will use the evidence-based GAIN treatment model and will be required report performance in the following domains: client's substance use, family and living condition, employment status, social connectedness, access to treatment, retention in treatment, and criminal justice status.
