The Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Program builds the capacity of states, state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments to enhance existing drug courts or implement new juvenile drug treatment courts (JDTCs) for individuals with substance abuse problems or co-occurring mental health disorders, including histories of trauma. Under Category 1: Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Planning, funding will support jurisdictions that have identified a need to establish a JDTC.

The Grayson County Department of Juvenile Services will establis a JDTC in Grayson County that will (1) reduce the risk of substance abuse episodes and rearrests, (2) enhance developmental relationships with participants, and (3) reduce the need to remove young people from the community. Project objectives include developing a policy and procedure manual, developing a strategic plan for implementation, identifying an ongoing training plan for the JDTC team, developing and enhancing community partnerships to offer effective evidence-based support, and serving approximately 48 JDTC participants.
