The Family Treatment Court (FTC) was implemented in July 2013 and currently serves Baldwin, Jones, Putnam, and Wilkinson Counties. The court is expanding to Jasper, Greene, and Morgan Counties.
FTC's were created as part of the drug court movement and addresses substance-abuse and parenting within the child welfare system. The program offers a range of services to parents, including parenting skills, domestic violence education and counseling, mental health maintenance, and evidence-based substance abuse treatment designed to strengthen the family as a whole.
FTC's are comprised of active judicial leadership including a juvenile court judge, the Department of Family and Children Services and substance-abuse treatment professionals. These agencies plan, implement, and assign staff to an operational team that works in the FTC on a day-to-day basis.
FTC requires the involvement of the community for resources which help to solve the myriad of practical problems addicts have hindering recovery.
Community support will be vital for sustaining the FTC!
If you are unable to attend, please be sure to designate and send a representative from your agency.
