Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $93,769)

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. Drug court programs funded by the Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program are required by law to target nonviolent offenders. The Program supports the following activities:
adult drug court implementation, single jurisdiction drug court enhancement, statewide drug court enhancement, and planning efforts.

The Loudoun County Drug Treatment Court Program will use the Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 Single Jurisdiction Drug Court Enhancement grant to enhance its twelve month treatment program through funding staff salaries, training, and other related expenses. The grantee will also seek electronic monitoring technology contracts to assist in the supervision of program participants. Loudoun County is located in Northern Virginia approximately 45 miles west of Washington, DC. Loudoun County was the fastest growing county in the United States between 2001 and 2003. The Loudoun County Adult Drug Treatment Court program was designed to reduce the impact of drug driven crime on the community through providing a cost effective and accountable system of supervision and treatment for non-violent offenders. The program serves non-violent, adult felons who have violated the terms and conditions of their supervised probation due to their alcohol and/or drug dependency. The program offers substance abuse treatment services; individual aftercare care service plans; educational and vocational services; primary and mental health services; and collateral services including housing, transportation, employment counseling and community service.

The project will increase participant retention by enhancing support services and resources for non-violent offenders partaking in program. A significant portion of the project will be devoted to the addition of sixteen (16) hours per week to the Offender Aid and Restitution (OAR) Case Manager's schedule in Loudoun County. Another focus of the project will be to facilitate the Supervision Team's caseload by investigating and implementing the use of monitoring technologies. The overall goals of the program are to provide an increased level of social and other support services to enhance treatment effectiveness; investigate and/or implement methods of intensive supervision technology for program participants; improve program responses to participant non-compliance; provide the Drug Court Team with on-going, continuing educational opportunities; and document program outcomes, evaluation, and sustainment efforts.
