Please see attached memo regarding our budget. Please click here to view the memo.
On September 21, 2010, the Office of Justice Programs at the Department of Justice notified Alamance County that it had been awarded a grant to initiate a Family Drug Treatment Court. The focus of the FTDC is to ensure the well-being and safety of children through alcohol and drug treatment, parent training and other services that create safe and stable environments. The program's goals are sobriety for the parents and permanency for the children. The program will restructure the local court process to provide access to the identified target population; allow court time and resources for FTDC; modify local court rules to allow case assignments to specific judges; hire personnel and contract for services; arrange for assessments for clients; arrange for services; provide assessment, treatment and transportation for families. Progress will be measured by the number of families served; average length of stay; number of system-level initiatives implemented; percent served by evidence-based programs; percent completing the program; and the percent who re-offend through drug offenses or child protection offenses. As more information becomes available, it will be provided. This is an exciting opportunity for families and Alamance County.
