Adult drug treatment courts in 44 communities nationally will be expanded thanks to $38.2 million in grants recently awarded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
The three-year grants will be used to provide addiction treatment, recovery support, screening, case-management, and program coordination in drug courts. Each grantee will receive up to $300,000 annually under the program administered by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment. Court systems were the main recipients of the awards.
