Through a collaborative effort, the Reno Family Drug Court seeks to ensure children have a safe and nurturing environment by focusing on both healthy and sober parenting and permanency planning through family reunification.
The Reno Family Drug Court deals primarily with poly-substance abuse issues and works with a high percentage of co-occurring disorders that are mental health related.
