DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL

Drug courts and children in need of services. Allows a parent, guardian, or custodian of a child who has been adjudicated a child in need of services due at least in part to the substance abuse of the parent, guardian, or custodian to participate in a drug court and receive intervention, treatment, and rehabilitative services. Specifies that if the parent, guardian, or custodian: (1) successfully completes drug court; or (2) has the person's participation in the drug court terminated; that fact must be taken into consideration when modifying a dispositional decree concerning the child in need of services. Provides that, in addition to certain other conditions, a court may defer criminal or juvenile proceedings and place a person who is a parent, guardian, or custodian of a child who has been adjudicated a child in need of services in a drug court only if the department of child services consents to the referral.
