Juvenile Drug Court is a program sponsored by the Kentucky Administrative Office of the Courts that reaches eligible juveniles with substance abuse issues.  The goal of Juvenile Drug Court is to treat a participant’s current issues with substance abuse, deter future problems with drugs and alcohol, and enhance his or her potential for success in school. JDC provides education, prevention, accountability and treatment referrals to participants and their families.

The Kentucky Court of Justice reaches those individuals through Drug Court who need help with getting off and staying off drugs.  Instead of spending time in jail, eligible participants complete a substance abuse program supervised by a judge.
