Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $349,301)

The purpose of the Adult 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 Highland Community Services Board will use the grant funds to build and maximize the capacity of a single jurisdiction drug court to ensure that all offenders are identified and assessed for risk and need; ensure all substance abusing offenders receive targeted research-based and data-driven services; and enhance the provision of ancillary services that prevent recidivism such as individualized treatment, vocational and educational services and community reintegration services to achieve long-term recovery.
