Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $342,049)

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.

Montgomery County will use the grant funds to implement an adult drug court to assist nonviolent offenders with successful rehabilitation from the use of drugs and/or alcohol. The intent of the drug court will be to promote public safety, reduce recidivism, and rehabilitate the offender. To accomplish this, the county will collaborate with community businesses and civic organizations, as well as self-help groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Families Anonymous, Ministerial Alliance, mental health centers, community colleges, and employment training centers. The drug court will serve both Christian and Montgomery Counties.
