Family Dependency Drug Court Program

About the Project

 Hillsborough County has identified a gap in treatment for dependency drug cases that require more intensive substance abuse services and more structured referral services to adequately address the issues of the clients in the dependency drug court. Due to the specialized needs of this population, an assertive treatment modality is necessary to effectively respond to the increasing population of caregivers and their dependents that are affected by substance abuse issues. The purpose of the Tampa DDC program is to (1) provide enhanced services to parents alleged to have neglected their children as a result of alcohol or other drug use, (2) ensure the safety and well-being of children, and (3) family reunification.
