Eval11 Session 569: An Outcome Evaluation of a Family Drug Court Model for Children and Families Affected by Substance Abuse 

11-01-2011 20:10

The purpose of this program evaluation was to determine the effectiveness of integrated substance abuse, mental health, and community services to children and families in two neighboring Colorado counties. The Regional Meth Partnership, funded by the federal Children's Bureau, provided intensive services through a family treatment drug court model. The study explored outcome differences between families participating in family treatment drug count and families who did not participate in this model. Program goals included increasing the safety, well-being, and permanency of at-risk children by providing a continuum of integrated services to those children, their parents and caregivers, and their families' support system. Variables included demographics, child welfare, treatment, and family outcomes. Results of outcome data will be presented including comparisons on the occurrence of child maltreatment, average length of stay in foster care, re-entries into foster care, timeliness of reunification, access to treatment, and retention in substance abuse treatment.
