Through federally- and foundation-funded projects, Children and Family Futures delivers training and technical assistance in varying intensities to states, tribes, and local jurisdictions on implementing family treatment court practices. 

Dependency courts and child welfare systems often lack sufficient resources to address the multiple needs and complex risk factors of families in which parental substance use disorders contribute to child maltreatment. Well-functioning family treatment courts bring together child welfare services, substance use disorder treatment agencies, and other community service providers to meet the diverse needs of these families. Family treatment courts seek to provide safe environments for children and intensive judicial monitoring and interventions to treat parents’ substance use disorders and other co-occurring risk factors.
