Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $395,178)

The Drug Treatment Courts Program builds the capacity of states, state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments to enhance pre-existing drug courts or implement new drug courts for individuals with substance abuse problems or co-occurring mental health disorders. Category 2: Family Drug Courts Enhancement will support jurisdictions with a fully operational (for at least 1 year) family drug court to enhance the operation of the court.

Judiciary Courts of the State of Michigan-9th Circuit Court will use funding to enhance Kalamazoo County's Family Dependency Treatment Court Program (FDTCP). The purpose of this project is to: expand the capacity of the FDTCP to serve 20 parents/guardians annually, which represents a 33.3% increase in program capacity; and enhance screening, assessment, clinical treatment, and wraparound recovery support services for parents/guardians and their children. FDTCP participants will have access to evidence-based practices and other services through this project, including outpatient therapy, intensive outpatient treatment, parenting classes, and trauma-informed care. Participants will also have access to comprehensive case management services through a FDTCP Case Manager and Peer Support Specialist/Recovery Coach. Children of participants will be screened and assessed by licensed therapists to identify needs in various domains using evidence-based screening and assessment tools. CA/NCF
