Expand substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2019 Grants to Expand Substance Abuse Treatment Capacity in Adult Treatment Drug Courts (ATDC) and Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts. The purpose of this program is to expand substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services in existing adult problem solving courts, and adult Tribal Healing to Wellness courts, which use the treatment drug court model in order to provide SUD treatment (including recovery support services, screening, assessment, case management, and program coordination) to defendants/offenders.

What this grant does for your agency

Recipients will be expected to provide a coordinated, multi-system approach designed to combine the sanctioning power of treatment drug courts with effective SUD treatment services to break the cycle of criminal behavior, alcohol and/or drug use, and incarceration or other penalties.

Applicants should propose to increase access and availability of services to a larger number of clients increasing the number of individuals served and the gaps in the continuum of treatment for individuals in these courts who have treatment needs for SUD and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders.

Grant funds must be used to serve people diagnosed with a SUD as their primary condition. SAMHSA will use discretion in allocating funding for these awards, taking into consideration the specific drug court model (ATDCs and Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts), as appropriate, the number of applications received per model type, and geographic distribution.

Agencies awarded the Adult Treatment Drug Courts and Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts receive grants up to $400,000 per year.

Only a limited number of grants will be awarded.

Anticipated Total Available Funding: Up to $10,000,000

Implement or enhance drug courts

The Family Drug Courts program builds the capacity of states, state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments to either implement new drug courts or enhance pre-existing drug courts for individuals with substance abuse disorders or substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders, including histories of trauma, who are involved with the family dependency court as a result of child abuse, neglect, and other parenting issues. Applicants must provide services to the parents in the program and their children. This program provides seed money, not long-term support. OJJDP expects successful applicants to develop and implement a sustainability plan during the grant period to continue operation of the family drug court when the grant ends.

  • Category 1: Implementation. Implementation grants are available to jurisdictions that are ready to implement a family drug court.

Jurisdictions may already have other types of drug or treatment courts (such as adult drug or mental health courts).
  • Category 2: Enhancement. Enhancement grants are available to jurisdictions with a fully operational (for at least 1 year) family drug court that wish to enhance the operation of the court.

Agencies awarded the OJJDP FY 2016 Family Drug Court Implementation and Enhancement Program Grant receive grants up to $600,000.
