As part of its peer-to-peer technical assistance programs, the Center for Children and Family Futures (CCFF) is highlighting examples for conducting successful family drug court programs. The new Family Drug Court (FDC) Peer Learning Court Program showcases national best practice models through five mentorship sites.

The courts selected as FDC Peer Learning Courts use evidence-supported practices and exhibit strong partnerships with child welfare, substance abuse, and other entities within the social services community. The five sites include:

  • The Baltimore City, MD, Juvenile Court Family Recovery Program
  • The Chatham County, GA, Family Dependency Treatment Court
  • The Hillsdale County, MI, Family Drug Treatment Court
  • The Jackson County, MO, Family Drug Court
  • The Pima County, AZ, Family Drug Court

More information about the five mentorship sites and the FDC Peer Learning Court Program is available on the CCFF website:
