This brief offers recommendations for one of the components of the Juvenile Drug Courts/Reclaiming Futures (JDC/RF) initiative that goes beyond the relationship between the court and the youth: family engagement. To inform policymakers and program managers that are seeking to improve or create a JDC/RF site, this policy brief explores challenges for engaging families and offers recommendations to enhance family engagement. These recommendations may also have broader implications for other JDCs. Policy recommendations for engaging families are described in the brief.
