(This amendment provides funding for four family drug court treatment programs, located in Charlottesville, Newport News, Richmond and Alexandria, that currently do not receive state funding. Family drug court programs are court programs devoted to cases of child abuse and neglect that involve substance abuse by the child's parents or other caregivers. Their purpose is to protect the safety and welfare of the child while giving the parents the tools they need to become sober, responsible caregivers. Without state funding, the services provided in these programs will be significantly reduced.)
