Family Treatment Court
The Family Treatment Court was created as a result of a partnership between the Family Court and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Children, Youth, Families, and Elders, and is in cooperation with key District health and human services stakeholders. It is a court-supervised, voluntary, comprehensive residential substance abuse treatment program for mothers or female caretakers whose children are the subject of a child neglect case.
Since its creation in 2003, the Family Treatment Court has held more than a dozen graduation ceremonies in the Moultrie Courthouse. During each ceremony, mothers graduate to lives without drugs and with their children.
