Grant County is taking intentional steps to enhance the process of recovery for addicted individuals. The Grant County Drug Court offers non-violent drug offenders an opportunity to break the cycle of addiction and crime. Drug Court is composed of four components: substance abuse treatment, random and frequent drug screens, regular court appearances and meetings with a probation officer, and incentives and sanctions to encourage a healthy, drug-free lifestyle. With this multifaceted approach of benefiting the individual and the community, Grant County is proud to a offer drug court services to those who are serious about turning their lives around and making a positive, drug-free change in their life.
The Grant County Family Dependency Treatment Court (FDTC) serves parents with substance use disorders in Child in Need of Services (CHINS) cases. FDTC’s goals are to provide parents quicker access to treatment, reduce time children are in out-of-home placements, and reduce the reoccurrence of maltreatment due to substance use by parents and custodians. The FDTC team consists of the Judge, Court Coordinator, Department of Child Services, CASA, and Treatment Providers (Milestone, Family Service Society, Inc., and Premier Care). FDTC also has multiple community partnerships, such as Marion Housing Authority, First Christian Church, and Pregnancy Help Center to name a few. FDTC is a certified problem-solving court that utilizes incentives and sanctions to foster parent progress toward family reunification, along with evidence-based curricula and programming. Addiction does not affect the parents alone, and our goal is to help these families recover.
