OJJDP's FY 2017 Juvenile Drug Treatment Court (JDTC) Program will support existing JDTCs in implementing system changes, service delivery, and programming practices that are in alignment with the JDTC Guidelines released in December of 2016.

DeKalb County Rebound Juvenile Drug Court (Rebound) uses evidence-based programs and practices to promote diversion and reduce recidivism and substance use by providing intensive court supervision. Rebound facilitates the substance use treatment of males age 14 to 17 assessed as moderate to high risk of reoffending who have admitted to the use or abuse of alcohol and other drugs and have committed a misdemeanor or felony offense. Over 12 to 15 months, participants receive intervention services that include substance abuse treatment, life skills development, mentoring and intensive recovery services. The goals of this project will be to (1)implement system changes, service delivery, and programming practices that are in alignment with the JDTC Guidelines and (2)implement research-informed approaches that are most likely to reduce future offending and improve outcomes.
