About Us

The Travis County Juvenile Drug Treatment Court (JTDC) serves post-adjudicated juveniles with co-occurring disorders and substance abuse issues. The strength-based program utilizes accountability by providing weekly court reviews, intensive supervision, and immediate linkage of substance abuse services to increase participation in treatment, education, and compliance with conditions of probation.

Reclaiming Futures Travis County is partnering with the courts, treatment facilities, juvenile justice, mental health professionals, community resources and families to meet the urgent needs of juveniles in our juvenile justice system. Our goals are to increase access to substance abuse treatment and mental health services, and provide comprehensive wraparound services. We plan to do this by integrating the Reclaiming Futures model into the Travis County Juvenile Justice Integrated Network.

We are doing the following to help young people in our area:

  • Integrating the Reclaiming Futures model into our juvenile drug treatment court
  • Providing evidenced-based comprehensive screening and assessment for youth entering our juvenile drug treatment courts
  • Implementing evidence-based treatment protocols
  • Providing residential substance abuse treatment
  • Enhancing our existing treatment network
  • Individualizing care by using a wraparound approach that draws on the youth’s natural supports in the community, including social activities, mentors, educational and employment services
