Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $135,733)

The Enhancing Adult Drug Court Services, Coordination, and Treatment Grant Program is designed to assist states, state courts, local courts, counties, other units of local government, or Indian tribal governments to implement comprehensive strategies for enhancing drug court capacity by bridging access to both criminal justice and substance abuse treatment funds. The program supports the development and establishment of drug courts for substance-abusing adults and that enhance drug court services, coordination, and substance abuse treatment and recovery support services. Drug court programs funded by the Enhancing Adult Drug Court Services, Coordination, and Treatment Grant Program are required by law to target nonviolent criminal offenders.

Alcona County will use the enhancing adult drug court services, coordination, and treatment grant to expand program services to two additional counties in the district. This expansion will allow a larger geographic area to receive drug/sobriety court services and will also allow the court to expand program capacity. The program is also seeking funding to enhance and expand participant services to include increasing access to substance abuse treatment services, mental health services, and support services.
