Luzerne County Treatment Court (LCTC) is requesting funding to expand the current caseload from 34 clients to 200 clients. Funding will be used for two new case managers, construction, training, drug testing supplies and interpreter expenses.

The LCTC will hire two new full time case managers. In addition, renovations will provide a dedicated space for in-house drug testing. LCTC team members will also attend trainings each year. The additional drug testing supplies that will be needed due to the increased number of clients and the costs associated with interpreter expenses will also be purchased with these grant funds.

LCTC serves adult residents of Luzerne County. Eligible clients are adult residents who have been charged with non-violent criminal offenses that were related to or motivated by their addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Luzerne County is requesting funding from Category 3 Adult Drug Court. LCTC is a Post Plea and Post Sentence program. The type of drug court funds being requested are ADC.

Luzerne County is requesting a total of $500,000 during the duration of the grant. The estimated total number of clients served during the life of this grant is 270. The minimum commitment to the program is 12 months; the average time spent by clients in the program ranges from 18 to 24 months.

The target population for the LCTC is individuals with diagnosed opioid use disorders and individuals who have experienced a nonfatal opioid overdose.

Clients have access to individual, group, family counseling and mental health services as well as pharmacotherapy interventions for clients who require it. 

The LCTC program is an evidence-based program operating in accordance with the ten key components established by the National Association of Drug Court Professionals.

LCTC team members typically attend AOPC/PATCP and NADCP – National Drug Court Training. Best practices are discussed on pages 2, 3, 5 and 17 through 19 in the narrative.
