Promising start for new Family Drug and Alcohol Court

The new model Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC) has the potential to improve outcomes for children by tackling the substance misuse of parents at an early stage of care proceedings, according to an independent report published today. 

Under the FDAC system, parents are getting immediate access to substance misuse services. Families are also benefiting from the court’s assistance in addressing other issues affecting their ability to parent, such as housing, domestic violence and financial hardship.
