OJJDP FY 2020 Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Program

Closing Date
Juvenile Drug Treatment Courts allow for intensive judicial supervision of youth and the provision of treatment to eligible, drug-involved juvenile offenders with the goal of reducing recidivism and substance abuse. The purpose of this solicitation is to implement new JDTCs and provide support to existing JDTCs to enhance treatment services. Applicants are expected to develop and implement a sustainability plan during the grant period to continue operation of the juvenile drug treatment court when the grant ends.

Research Reviews and Practices Scans: To establish a research evidence base for the Guideline Statements, the Core Research Team first conducted four systematic reviews based on a uniform process. The Core Research also conducted two systematic reviews of JDTC policies and practices. First, the project team used a combination of document review and interviews to conduct an environmental scan of 25 JDTCs. Second, more intensive listening sessions were conducted with five JDTCs.  The full reports of the findings from these systematic reviews can be found through the links below:
