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.

The Fresno County Superior Court will use the enhancing adult drug court services, coordination, and treatment grant to facilitate needs assessments to identify those clients presenting co-morbidity symptoms. Case managers will work closely with clinicians to provide intensive supervision and accountability as well as assist clients with the access of public benefits and ancillary services. Finally, the award will allow for training to implement clinical and programmatic best practices.
