Drug Dependency Court Program


The Dependency Drug Court Program provides screenings and referrals for drug and/or alcohol treatment to families that are involved in Child Welfare Services (CWS). Substance Abuse Specialists are stationed at the five Dependency Courts located at County of San Diego Superior Court buildings.

Clients needing additional support services can also be referred to the Level 2 Drug Court program. In this program, clients work with the Drug Court Specialist and have weekly support group meetings with the Judge and other Drug Court participants.

Professional Staff

Substance Abuse Specialists work with the adult client, social worker, and Court to determine the treatment program best suited for the client. Specialists facilitate the client entry into treatment and report status to Child Welfare Services (CWS) case workers.
