About Us

The goal of Catawba County Reclaiming Futures is to develop a continuum of care for youth who are impacted by substance use/abuse and involved in the Juvenile Justice system. Recent statistics from the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) for Catawba County shows an increase in the number of DJJ involved youth in need of substance abuse treatment. Historically, treatment engagement within this population has been difficult.

At Reclaiming Futures Catawba County, numerous community agencies are working collaboratively to establish a service array that effectively addresses substance use/abuse for youth in our justice system. This comprehensive approach increases opportunities for youth with substance use issues to be identified early for treatment, engaged quickly in treatment, and linked appropriately to pro social activities after treatment. We believe this continuum of care is critical for achieving positive outcomes for Catawba County youth.

What we plan to do to help the young people in our area:

  • ncrease the ability to screen, identify, and refer youth involved with Juvenile Justice for substance abuse treatment
  • Improve engagement of youth and families in recommended treatment
  • Create a comprehensive system-of-care to facilitate coordination of services and resources for youth
