Resource Description

This technical assistance brief provides the first comprehensive set of recommendations for successful engagement of families in the juvenile drug treatment court process based on the results of a nationwide survey of professionals with youth-serving drug treatment courts, mental health courts, and hybrid courts. The key findings of the survey—which measured court practices and staff perceptions related to family engagement—are presented in this brief, along with essential information on substance use and addiction among young people. Finally, this brief offers a self-evaluation tool to assess a court’s current practices and descriptions of two juvenile drug treatment courts that demonstrate a strong commitment to family engagement.
