Purpose: This project will develop and undertake an environmental scan in relation to drug rehabilitation and treatment programs for youth in custody who are harmfully involved with illegal substances. The goal of this project is to develop a promising best practice addictions intervention model for incarcerated youth through expansion of existing CHOICES service to the Nova Scotia Youth Facility. The expectation is that drug treatment follow-up into the community upon discharge/release will be included in this model. Program interventions would also take place at various points in the youth justice system, such as a diversion away from the formal court system, during reintegration, or during a custody and supervision order.
