Juvenile drug court is a successful alternative for youth with alcohol and drug problems, according to the U.S. Office of Justice Programs (OJP). A child placed in the juvenile drug court docket meets weekly with a team of professionals to find the best ways to handle his or her problems.
The OJP’s Bureau of Justice Assistance has teamed up with the National Association of Drug Court Professionals to create the new online National Drug Court Resource Center. The Center provides a network of support and information to give understanding to those who are involved or interested in drug courts. At the Resource Center you’ll find training opportunities, research statistics and ways to get funding. You’ll soon be able to follow blogs and chat live with others who also care about this topic.
