Reclaiming Futures is creating a new pathway for treating teens caught in the cycle of drugs, alcohol, crime and the juvenile justice system. A 5-year, $21 million initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Reclaiming Futures promotes new opportunities and standards of care in juvenile justice by bringing communities together to improve drug and alcohol treatment, expand and coordinate services, and find jobs and volunteer work for young people in trouble with the law. This grant provides support for Reclaiming Futures Kentucky River Community Care Inc, to sustain the implementation of the Reclaiming Futures model. The Kentucky River site will use this grant to develop adequate and flexible funding to serve unmet needs for coordinated care management and treatment; institutionalize data collection in the Reclaiming Futures process; and expand and sustain community involvement.
