As the only provider for Juvenile Drug Court in Seminole County, The Grove is able to offer an alternative to the normal judicial process for delinquency cases. The mission of the Seminole County Juvenile Drug Court is to reduce substance abuse and juvenile crime, and increase public safety by providing an alternative to the normal judicial process in delinquency cases. The process is initiated in the State Attorney’s office. The Grove then intervenes in cases and offers services to help the youth transition into a healthy lifestyle and greatly reduce the chance of a youth re-entering the system.

A youth’s vision of a better life is supported through the Juvenile Drug Court Program through the following benefits:

  • Specialized intensive substance abuse treatment
  • Acquisition of the tools required for positive lifestyle changes and the development of improved coping skills
  • Strengthen family relationships.
  • Enhance employment opportunities.
  • Improve educational focus and goal setting.
  • Potential to end juvenile probation upon successful completion of program.
  • Nolle Prosequi (be unwilling to pursue, do not prosecute)
  • Reduction in chance for recidivism.

The Grove’s Juvenile Drug Court involves four phases paired with the following requirements.

Phase 1 (approximately 45 days):
