Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $197,348)
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 Jackson County Treatment Drug Court (JCTC) will use the FY 2009 Drug Court Enhancement grant to incorporate the ten key components of the Federal Drug Court Model, utilizing evidence-based practices. The JCTC's primary goal is to reduce methamphetamine-related crime, rehabilitate participants, provide additional substance abuse training programs, and promote long term recovery in program participants. The JCTC is comprised of an adult drug court (ADC) and a community family drug court (CFC) that serves over 175 non-violent adult offenders annually, with priority to patients who have been diagnosed with methamphetamine dependence. Drug court treatment programming is provided in three phases: orientation, active treatment, and relapse prevention. Participant goals are developed along with a case management plan that monitors progress.
