FY2016 HHS Grants to Expand Substance Abuse Treatment in Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts and Juvenile Treatment Drug Courts (Short Title: SAMHSA Treatment Drug Courts)

Applications Due: April 4, 2016, 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time

Description:

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2016 Grants to Expand Substance Abuse Treatment Capacity in Adult Treatment Drug Courts and Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts.  The purpose of this program is to expand and/or enhance substance use disorder treatment services in existing adult problem solving courts, and adult Tribal Healing to Wellness courts, which use the treatment drug court model in order to provide alcohol and drug treatment (including recovery support services, screening, assessment, case management, and program coordination) to defendants/offenders.  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 for use of grant funds 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.  SAMHSA will use discretion in allocating funding for these awards, taking into consideration the specific drug court model (Adult Treatment Drug Courts and Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts), as appropriate, and the number of applications received per model type.
