North Carolina Reclaiming Futures
The Reclaiming Futures Initiative in North Carolina is designed to help improve the work among juvenile courts, probation, adolescent substance abuse and mental health treatment, and the community to reclaim youth. The model embodies three major elements: improvement in treatment services for mental health and drug and alcohol use; a comprehensive system of care that coordinates services; and the involvement of the community in creating new opportunities for the youth.
In 2011, North Carolina established a statewide office to support the implementation of the North Carolina Reclaiming Futures Initiative. The state office is supported by a public-private partnership among the Department of Public Safety, Governor's Crime Commission, Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust and The Duke Endowment. The Initiative is overseen by the Reclaiming Futures State Champions advisory group, which includes the Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities & Substance Abuse Services; Division of Medical Assistance; Administrative Office of the Courts; Wake Forest School of Medicine; University of North Carolina at Greensboro; Reclaiming Futures National Program Office, and our funding partners.
The state office works in partnership with local sites throughout North Carolina to provide coaching, training and evaluation support. Sites include:
