Voluntary program has had over 250 graduates since its inception in 2006.
On Wednesday, November 7th, a special graduation will take place to celebrate the achievements of the Belvedere DCFS Drug Court Program. The families of nine graduates, Judge Marpet and DCFS staff overseeing the program will be on hand to celebrate this significant milestone on their road to recovery.
For the past 12 years, Drug Court, a voluntary one-year program, has allowed DCFS parents to participate in intensive substance abuse treatment. As part of the treatment, the parent can be tested between 3-5 times a week, participate in groups 3-5 times weekly, and attend weekly counseling sessions, parenting, anger management and domestic violence classes. The participating parent teams with a social worker, treatment counselors, attorneys and Judge/Commissioner and attends Drug Court hearings every two weeks to once a month, depending on the progress of the client. Since its inception in 2006, the program has had over 250 graduates, helping parents achieve sobriety. Drug Court serves about 25 to 30 families a year
