Hands holding paper cut-out of a familyMission Statement

Coos County Family Treatment Court (CCFTC) Mission is a collaborative effort that offers families the support, services, and treatment necessary to assist parents in establishing and maintaining sobriety while providing safety for their children. CCFTC strives to empower families to look beyond compliance and abstinence, encouraging them to make a commitment to a lifestyle of recovery

Program Overview

The CCFTC program is a 5-phase intervention / treatment program designed for parents who have struggled with substance use disorder. The program takes a minimum of about 12 months to complete, although most families will complete the program in 12-18 months. This program is a collaborative effort between Coos County Circuit Court, Adapt Integrated Health Care, the Oregon Department of Human Services Child Welfare, and other community partners who want to see you succeed. By working together as a team, we hope to provide a variety of programs, supervision, and support to help you gain the skills needed to maintain a substance-free life.
