The Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program is designed to assist states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments in developing and establishing drug courts for substance-abusing adult and juvenile offenders.

The Okanogan Behavorial Healthcare and Medical Clinic (OBHC) will use Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 Drug Court Enhancement grant funds to improve treatment for meth-addicted participants and leverage community support for aftercare in rural areas. The Drug Court will provide training and education opportunities for new team members and others including law enforcement leaders.
