Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $400,000)

The Family Drug Court Implementation and Enhancement Program builds the capacity of states, state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments to either implement new drug courts or enhance pre-existing drug courts for individuals with substance abuse disorders or substance use and cooccurring mental health disorders, including histories of trauma, who are involved with the family dependency court as a result of child abuse, neglect, and other parenting issues. This program is authorized by 42 U.S.C. 3797u, et seq.

The goals of the Hillsdale Family Treatment Court (HFTC) program are to sustain and expand HFTC program services, explore and implement medically assisted treatment, protect children who have substance-abusing parents, develop positive support networks in the community, and provide permanence for children by increasing parental capacity to provide long-term safety and well-being for their children. HFTC will partner with local agencies to provide access to medically assisted treatment and will use evidence-based treatment for individuals and families, including Moral Reconation Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and various CBT interventions, which promote family engagement and provide adequate treatment to substance-abusing parents and their children.
