Addiction is on the rise and each year – in Nassau County – a growing number of families are impacted by substance abuse. Many come into court under child neglect proceedings. In order to end this heartbreaking epidemic, communities must work together to break the revolving door cycle of crime and addiction.
Nassau County Family Treatment Court (NCFTC) partnered with EAC Network to provide families affected by substance abuse with specialized services that target long term recovery. When a parent first comes to court, they undergo a screening by a case manager from the treatment team to determine whether they meet the program’s criteria. Once deemed appropriate and the parent voluntarily agrees, they are officially admitted shortly after intake.
How We Do it:
The Nassau County Family Treatment Court uses a multi-disciplinary approach including coordinated case management, drug testing, electronic monitoring for alcohol use, outpatient substance abuse treatment via EAC’s OASAS licensed New Path Treatment Center, supervised visitation, and Court Appointed Special Advocates. Through this collaborative effort, resources are dedicated to helping and healing Nassau County families.
