Family Treatment Court
The Family Treatment Court (FTC) program is a multi-agency team response to child neglect cases that have been identified by the Tompkins County Department of Social Services to have been the result of significant substance abuse by the parents. The program is designed to break the cycle of addiction and neglect through intensive supervision, judicial oversight and quick access to community resources. The role of Probation is to provide intensive supervision of the participant as well as on-site testing for substance abuse. In addition, the Probation Officer will make referrals to community resources as appropriate.
