COSHOCTON – Coshocton County Juvenile Court Judge Van Blanchard recently received notification that the Court was named the recipient of an award from the Supreme Court of Ohio as part of the Specialized Dockets Court Improvement Program.The Court Improvement Program directs funding to Courts for the enhancement of Specialized Dockets, and was approved for the local Juvenile Court to expand its Specialty Drug Court Docket to create a Family Drug Court, after several planning sessions and analysis by a team made up of representatives from Job & Family Services, Coshocton Behavioral Health Choices, the Court, and the Supreme Court of Ohio Specialized Dockets Counsel.

With the award, the Court has hired local resident JoAnn Uhlig as the Family Drug Court Coordinator and is in the process of developing treatment and docket standards before operations can begin. The docket will provide specific treatment and support to families that are in Court with Children Services case involvement, and will empower families to successfully complete treatment and skill development.
