About Us

Each year in Guilford County, NC there has been an increase in the number of young people with drug and criminal activity. The Community Systems Progress Indicators Report (CSPI; 2nd quarter, FY 07-08) indicates only 4 percent of youth in need of substance abuse services were treated. This reinforces the need we have for improved drug screening and more providers to effectively serve our young people. Through the Reclaiming Futures model, we plan to better utilize existing resources to support evidence-based practices here.

Reclaiming Futures Guilford County is partnering with juvenile justice, courts, local treatment facilities, a university, family organizations and the community to address the urgent needs of youth in our juvenile system.

We plan to do the following to help young people in our area:

  • Improve treatment services for drug and alcohol use
  • Create a comprehensive system of care that coordinates social services
  • Involve the community in creating new opportunities for youth

In addition, we will provide training on the Global Appraisal of Individual Needs (GAIN) screener and work with trained clinicians to offer in-depth assessments. With better screening and assessments through the Reclaiming Futures model, we will gather a more accurate understanding of the numbers of youth in need of help.
