Family Drug Courts: A National Symposium To Improve Family Recovery, Safety, and Stability
Family Drug Courts: A National Symposium To Improve Family Recovery, Safety, and Stability was held on September 5–6, 2012, in Anaheim, California. The symposium provided an opportunity for substance abuse treatment, child welfare, and court professionals working in or with Family Drug Courts (FDCs) to hear and exchange information concerning policy, program strategies, and advanced practices for FDCs including eligibility, screening, assessment, engagement, and retention; continuing judicial supervision and ethical considerations; drug testing; collaborative and system issues; program design and models; research, data collection, and program evaluation; funding and sustainability; specialized services for children, including substance-exposed infants; and gender-specific, culturally competent, trauma-informed, and family-centered substance abuse treatment and aftercare.
The symposium featured 5 plenary sessions, 23 workshops, and 7 facilitated breakout sessions by discipline. To access all workshop materials, visit the FDC symposium website.
