The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is accepting applications for fiscal year 2017 grants to expand substance abuse treatment in Adult Drug Courts and Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts. Applications are due Monday, December 12, 2016.
The purpose of the grant program is to expand and/or enhance substance use disorder treatment services in existing adult problem solving courts and adult tribal treatment courts, including recovery support services, screening, assessment, case management, and program coordination.
Grantees will be expected to provide a coordinated, multi-system approach designed to combine the sanctioning power of treatment drug courts with effective substance use disorder treatment services to break the cycle of criminal behavior, alcohol and/or drug use, and incarceration or other penalties.
Priority should be given to addressing gaps in the continuum of treatment for individuals in these courts who have substance use disorders or co-occurring substance use and mental disorder (COD) treatment needs. Grant funds must be used to serve people diagnosed with a substance use disorder as their primary condition.
Eligible applicants include tribal, state and local governments with direct involvement with the drug court/tribal healing to wellness court, or local governmental unit such as county or city agency, federally recognized American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes and tribal organizations, and individual adult treatment drug courts.
