The Delaware County Family Treatment Courts effectively intervene with parental substance abuse through systematic and coordinated supervision, treatment and case planning; supporting substance free lifestyles, reducing criminal behavior, and assisting in the development of healthier families and a safer community.

The Delaware Family Treatment Court Program is a comprehensive strategy to effectively link the court system and community substance abuse treatment services in order to assist in the reunification of children with their parents.

The Delaware County Treatment Court initiative seeks to link alcohol and drug treatment and related services to the parents of abused, neglected, and/or dependent children.  The program seeks to make services available in a timely manner to parents who have been required by the court to have drug and alcohol assessments or treatment.

The goals are for program participants to:
Be alcohol/drug free
Demonstrate cooperation and follow through with treatment plan
Work towards reunification
Follow guidelines of the established case plan
