DEPENDENCY DRUG COURT

Since 1998, drug court coordinators and specially trained child welfare counselors have provided intensive assessment, case management and therapeutic crisis intervention services in collaboration with a number of community service providers. The population eligible for DDC are parents named in new dependency petitions with substance abuse allegations who want to be the primary custodian. If the possibility of reunification exists, these parents can be offered DDC services. The DDC provides maximum support to the parents as they move towards sobriety which includes screening, assessment, treatment plans and evidence-based case management and parenting programs. The goals are to increase positive permanency outcomes (sole custody, joint custody, or permanent guardianship with family members when termination of parental rights is the necessary).

Security
All individuals entering the courthouse will need to pass security screening. There are no weapons or hazardous materials allowed in the courthouse. All handheld and carry items will be subject to inspection.
