Children's Justice Initiative Alcohol and Other Drugs Project: Helping families recover and care for their children
In early 2005, the Children's Justice Initiative, working to streamline social services and court functions to better serve children in need of protection, launched the Children's Justice Initiative-Alcohol and Other Drugs (CJI-AOD) Project to serve families affected by alcohol and other drug problems. The project was designed to enhance the capacity of the child welfare, chemical health, and court systems to address this problem, further develop cross-systems partnerships, and improve practices.
The mission of the project is to ensure abused and neglected children involved in the juvenile protection court system have safe, stable, permanent families by improving parental and family recovery from alcohol and other drug problems.
