Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $149,266)

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.

The 42nd Judicial Circuit will expand its drug court program to Reynolds County, the last county of the five counties within the 42nd Judicial Circuit to implement a drug court. The grant will provide funds to send drug court team members to training in order to increase the knowledge and skills of the team, and allow them to more effectively work with participants of the program. Additionally, the grant will provide support to facilitate the process and outcome evaluation in order to determine whether or not the goals are being met, and what elements need to be changed in order to meet the goals.
