Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $300,000)

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.

Tehama County will use the enhancing adult drug court services, coordination, and treatment grant to reduce substance abuse dependence and subsequent recidivism among offenders. The program aims to reduce dependence by providing immediate, continuous, and intensive judicially supervised treatment, regular drug testing, interagency supervision and monitoring, graduated sanctions and restitution, an array of support services, transportation, child care, employment and training, housing, and community support meetings.
