Juvenile Drug Court is an intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment program for adolescents who have been arrested and determined to have substance abuse issues and may also present with mental health issues. The program is a four-phase program requiring all youth to participate in individual and group counseling, chemical education classes, community involvement, family counseling, and observed urinalysis. Juvenile Drug Court builds a strong foundation in the development of strong interpersonal skills through the following treatment objectives: social skills, independent living skills, educational/vocational skills, anger management, mental health, healthy relationships, and self-exploration.
The Juvenile Drug Court program requires a minimum of twenty (20) weeks participation with the average length of treatment lasting six months. Juvenile Drug Court accepts clients from judicial and non-judicial referral sources across participating counties.
