Juvenile drug courts incorporate specialized services for youth and their families.
Cases are assigned based on criteria set by the court. Adhering to the "Principles of Balanced and Restorative Justice," these courts provide continuous judicial supervision over delinquency and status offense cases involving substance-abusing juveniles.
They offer services for abuse treatment, mental health, primary care, family, education, vocation and social development. They also coordinate and supervise the delivery of various support services to address problems contributing to juvenile involvement in the justice system.
