The Lifetime Counseling Center is the contracted behavioral health provider for Brevard’s Juvenile Drug Court (JDC). The interdisciplinary JDC team was selected as one of six sites in the U.S. for a research project sponsored by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) under the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). The project has been designed to test the efficacy of implementation of new Juvenile Drug Treatment Court guidelines.
In addition, our JDC team, is the recipient of a three-year grant from OJJDP. This grant is designed to expand treatment services for JDC youth who may not otherwise be able to afford these services.
