Description

This solicitation will support juvenile drug treatment courts to implement system changes, service delivery, and programming enhancements that are in alignment with the Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Guidelines (JDTC Guidelines) that OJJDP anticipates releasing by the end of 2016. The new JDTC Guidelines will provide juvenile courts with an evidence-based, treatment-oriented approach that emphasizes family engagement and addresses the substance use and often co-occurring mental health challenges experienced by the youth. The guidelines are grounded in research on adolescent development, substance use treatment, youth interventions, family engagement, juvenile courts, and juvenile drug courts. Successful applicants will also be required to work with OJJDP's training and technical assistance provider and to participate in research and evaluation activities to be conducted by an independent evaluator, funded separately by OJJDP.
