The Grants to Expand Substance Abuse Treatment Capacity in Adult Treatment Drug Courts and Adult Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts program (short title: SAMHSA Treatment Drug Courts) provides funding to expand substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services in existing adult problem solving courts, and adult Tribal Healing to Wellness courts, which use the treatment drug court model in order to provide SUD treatment for defendants/offenders.

Funding should be used to support direct services, which include:

  1. Screen and assess clients for the presence of SUD and/or co-occurring substance use and mental disorders and use the information obtained from the screening and assessment to develop appropriate treatment approaches
  2. Provide evidence based and population appropriate treatment approaches to meet the unique needs of diverse populations at risk, including:
    • Medication delivery and management
    • Outpatient and intensive outpatient
    • Day treatment
    • Recovery housing
    • Residential programs
  3. Provide "wrap around" recovery support services designed to improve access and retention in services, such as:
    • Childcare
    • vocational/educational services
    • Transportation
  4. Collaborate with community partners to provide comprehensive services

SAMHSA intends to make an equitable distribution of awards in terms of geography (including urban, rural, and remote settings) and balance among populations of focus and program size.


Eligible applicants are state, local, tribal, and territorial governments with direct involvement in the adult treatment drug court or Tribal Healing to Wellness Court.

Projects funded through this program in FY 2017 or FY 2018 are not eligible to apply during this funding cycle.
