Featured News: Need for Multiple Naloxone Doses on the Rise
The percentage of people treated for a drug overdose who need more than one dose of the opioid overdose antidote naloxone is on the rise, a new study suggests.
Programs that can help drug courts implement best practices can apply for training and technical assistance grants from the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
Grants of up to $1 million will be awarded to schools, nonprofits, for-profit firms, or other entities that can “build the capacity of states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to maintain, and enhance existing drug courts for substance-abusing juvenile offenders.”
Providers will be expected to deliver training and technical assistance in implementing the 16 Strategies of Effective Juvenile Drug Courts (PDF).
Application deadline is June 15. For more details, see the full grant announcement online (PDF).
