Chart V-E -1: Advice to Colleagues In Other Jurisdictions: Juvenile Drug Courts

 

State

Jurisdiction

Advice

AL

Birmingham

Make certain linkages are firmly established prior to implementation. Make sure the judiciary is giving strong support. Prepare for the client base to grow slowly and stay program longer than expected. Assure adequate treatment resources.

CA

Auburn

Carefully identify you target population and consistently implement only that population.

CA

French camp

Provide mandatory family counseling on an on-going basis

CA

EL Dorado

Communication and all treatment team members working together is extremely important in an effective drug court program.

CA

San Francisco

Be sure to include that family piece as a priority. Make sure you get community involvement.

CA

San Jose

Make sure there are enough treatment providers and commitment by the community to invest in those resources.

DE

Wilmington

Compile a good team, take it slow, plan well

FL

Bartow

Just do it!

FL

Jacksonville

1. Start with small number of 3 to 5 clients. Do Not exceed 10 per quarter for 1st year to 18 mos.

2. Network with other Juv. Drug Courts.

3. Go to Juvenile programs and workshops.

4. Get to know school programs and administrators

5. Read all you can on dual diagnosis and family orientation.

6. Monitor provider programs

7. Get involved with community programs for youth and families and be patient.......

FL

Key West

1. Stabilize funding

2. Do not develop your program on the adult model

3. Do not widen the CJ net in an effort to help everyone

4. Do not hire counseling staff that has not provided family counseling to at risk families

5. Obtain culturally competent staff

6. Use assessment instruments

FL

Orlando

Do not make the target population too narrow.

FL

Pensacola (juvenile)

We are in the process of selecting a MIS System for the Juvenile Drug Court. I would recommend this be addressed prior to implementation of other programs.

FL

Tampa

Be creative

IL

Chicago

1. Be absolutely clear on method/access of cash flow

2. Be sure service providers understand adolescents abusing marijuana and alcohol, and are willing to provide aggressive outreach.

3. Use a post adjudication population.

KY

Louisville

It is 10 times harder than implementing the adult drug court. Many fewer resources are available. Seems to be harder to effect systems change.

MT

Missoula

A Juvenile Drug Court allows the Court to be more involved in positive change for youth. It takes an increased commitment of time, but we believe your programs and youth will benefit from such an effort.

NJ

Jersey City

NM

Las Cruces

Advisory board - key stakeholders an absolute must in participation/a committed Juvenile Judicial System "ONE TREATMENT PROVIDER" for proper continuity. Support from Public Defender & DA

1. Look at other drug courts! Spend time in each of them. Especially if you are developing a juvenile drug court, talk to and visit people who have them in place.

2. Read and learn all you can about the precepts of drug courts -- don't start it until you are clear about expectations and goals, as well as treatment interventions.

SC

Charleston

1. Hire motivated staff
