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 Fifth Judicial District Court will enhance adult drug court services, coordination, and treatment grant to increase the effectiveness of the drug court staff and team by affording them the opportunity to attend relevant training programs. This effort will be accomplished by providing extensive substance abuse treatment in addition to mental health services. The drug court program will provide enhanced support services to the participants through the addition of two surveillance officers and one case worker.
