Family Drug Treatment Courts: Models and Outcomes (Pre-Conference Seminar F)
Family Drug Treatment Courts: Models and Outcomes
(Pre-Conference Seminar F)
The family drug treatment court (FDTC) approach involves court-based collaborations created to protect children from abuse and neglect; the provision of alcohol and other drug treatment; and safe, timely, and permanent homes for children. Presenters discuss various FDTC models, focusing on the development of family drug treatment courts, planning and implementation issues, and innovative practices. Other issues to be discussed include training and practice changes that occur in the child welfare and substance abuse realms as a result of the creation of a FDTC; the importance of collaboration; and the complexities of cross-system data collection and outcome monitoring. The seminar concludes with preliminary outcome findings from several FDTC models, including the Sacramento Dependency Drug Court.
