5 What do we know? Substance abuse has contributed to triple-digit increases in the numbers of youth arrested for drug-related offenses in the last 10 years Almost half of all youth receiving publicly-funded alcohol and drug treatment in the U.S. are referred by the juvenile justice system

6 Drugs, alcohol and crime America s juvenile justice system faces a public health crisis Multiple data sources suggest that the substance abuse issues of young people are related to juvenile offending Research shows treating drug and alcohol abuse reduces crime, saves money and builds safer communities

7 No national standards to identify and deliver service Many promising models in juvenile court still regarded as specialty programs drug court, BARJ, detention reform Many evidence-based practices for adolescent alcohol and drug treatment but most programs not yet utilizing them No standards for integrating care across justice and treatment, and among the other systems in a youth s life The need

11 Reclaiming Futures site locations

12 Our six-step model

13 Evaluation Three questions for evaluation: 1. Is it possible to provide comprehensive, coordinated, developmentally and culturally appropriate care for troubled youth in and beyond the juvenile justice system? 2. More practically, can you change the system? 3. Even more importantly, do these changes positively impact youth s lives? New Hampshire

14 Urban Institute and Chapin Hall: Findings Twice annual surveys measure 13 yardsticks Statistically significant improvements in 12 out of 13 scales Only the indexes on agency partnerships did not change significantly and that may be due to the fact that it was already very high

15 More work to be done

16 North Carolina Dr. Jenkins SAG leadership focused on Training and orientation to link outcome-focused grant making Demonstrate how to tie RF and similar ESP s to three year plans Link compliance and system improvements/reforms to core protections of the JJDPA Help communities realize the competencies they need to transfer RF into their service networks and communities

17 North Carolina Dr. Jenkins SAG Adoption of Reclaiming Futures Model Disseminate Reclaiming Futures outcomes Support training and technical assistance on Reclaiming Futures principles, research, and advantages via regional grant award or grant cultivation workshops Fund portions of Reclaiming Futures community implementations Link to implementation and outcome evaluation In North Caroline, work with JCPC s to co-fund pieces of local services continuum Work with Division of MH/DD/SAS to blend service dollars
