Kitsap - Veterans Court


CFF provides evaluation and consulting services to the Kitsap County Veterans Treatment Court (Kitsap VTC). In 2012, Kitsap County (WA) received a three year grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to add a Veterans Track to the Adult Drug Court (in operation since 1999). The grant expanded services of the Adult Drug Court Program to provide and enhance services to Veterans. CFF was awarded with a three year contract by the Kitsap County Veterans Court to provide comprehensive evaluation services for the Veterans Court. The evaluation assesses the impact of program participation on parental engagement in substance abuse treatment and program services. Unique identifiers link parents in the database, as well as to established instrumentation such as the GPRA measure, the Addiction Severity Index (ASI) and the PTSD Checklist-Military Version (PCL-M). A comprehensive process evaluation, program fidelity measures, and a historical log ensure that program strengths and weaknesses are continually assessed and findings are reported to the Treatment Court Manager on an ongoing basis. CFF also supports the Kitsap VTC through development of marketing documents and presentations to stakeholders, and ongoing sustainability planning.
