Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $350,000)

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.

Monongalia County will use the grant funds to implement the Monongalia County adult drug court to assist nonviolent offenders with successful rehabilitation from the use of drugs. The goals of the drug court will be to: reduce substance use and addiction among non-violent offenders by developing and implementing a drug court program with increased level of supervision, treatment, and support services; and promote public safety by reducing criminal activity in the community by providing supervision and treatment services to drug court participants within the community in lieu of incarceration.
