This 5-year project focuses on Milwaukee County’s Family Drug Treatment Court (FDTC), which is a voluntary program that provides substance abuse treatment and family support services to parents or guardians whose substance use disorder is a safety concern that results in the removal of the children from their care.
With funding from SAMHSA as well as the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Duke Endowment, the ICFW team is conducting a mixed-methods evaluation of the FDTC program. Information gathered from program participants, staff, and key stakeholders are being evaluated and shared with project partners to facilitate program performance monitoring and continuous quality improvement.
