The New York State Unified Court System will apply the Reclaiming Futures program model to the Nassau County Juvenile Treatment Court. The goals of the integrated program will be to 1) improve the identification of juveniles requiring substance abuse treatment by working with the Nassau County Probation Department to establish greater information sharing and expand the screening and assessment of those juveniles who are the named respondents in juvenile delinquency petitions; and 2) engage juveniles more effectively in treatment by collaborating with the Nassau County Youth Board and community-based service providers to increase the number and variety of effective treatment options available for juveniles in need of substance abuse treatment.

The Center for Court Innovation will conduct an evaluation on the achievement of the goals and specified objectives. In addition, the evaluation will collect all specific performance indicators required under the OJJDP solicitation. CA/NCF

In FY 07, through a partnership with OJJDP, the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the New York State Unified Court System was funded to expand the capacity of service delivery to the Nassau County Juvenile Treatment Court program by integrating the Reclaiming Futures program model and initiating 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. The Nassau County Juvenile Treatment Court 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.
