One of the most important decisions faced by each Family Drug Court is determining its target population and what resources are needed to serve them. This webinar presentation will provide an overview of key considerations when selecting and modifying your target population and why a collaborative approach is critical when making such decisions. Whether you are planning a new Family Drug Court or an established program, these decisions are critical to the mission, practice and policies, outcomes, and sustainability of your FDC. This webinar will highlight two Family Drug Courts programs and the collaborative process they underwent in determining and serving the needs of special populations in their FDC. Special focus will be on serving co-occurring clients and children ages 0-3.
