Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $188,353)

The purpose of the Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program (42 U.S.C. 3797u et seq.) is to provide financial and technical assistance to states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to develop and implement drug treatment courts that effectively integrate substance abuse treatment, mandatory drug testing, sanctions and incentives, and transitional services in a judicially supervised court setting with jurisdiction over nonviolent, substance-abusing offenders. The FY 2010 Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program will provide grant funds to jurisdictions to implement or enhance a local drug court or to improve, enhance, expand, or financial support drug court services statewide.

The Solano County Superior Court will use the grant funds to enhance the Dependency Drug Court (DDC) program's expansion project. The DDC provides treatment services for non-violent adult offenders who have substance abuse disorders and/or co-occurring disorders, live in Solano County, and have children. The Solano Superior Court's DDC program is a non-adversarial collaborative adult treatment drug court employing intensive judicial monitoring with strength based case management. The DDC will use the grant funds to hire an additional case manager to increase program client capacity by 75 clients, thereby reducing the number of adults on the drug court waiting list. CA/NCF
