Kris Korpela from Dunn County Dept of Human Services spoke at the Sunrise Rotary Club. The Dunn County Criminal Justice Collaborating Council and Department of Human Services have teamed up to develop a Family Drug Treatment Court which will be operational mid-August.

The model is designed as a way to address child safety when a parent or parents are actively using drugs or alcohol in a way which creates unsafe conditions for the kids. It involves intensive monitoring, a focus on treatment, case management and regular court appearances for accountability.
