This is a specialized court for substance-using parents/caregivers whose families have become involved with the child welfare system. The goal is to achieve family reunification. The program is rated Promising. Participation in the program led to higher odds of family reunification, and lower odds that children would reenter care after permanent reunification. However, families that participated in the program achieved permanency at a slower rate, compared with families that did not participate.
