ASAC has added the role of Family Treatment Court Recovery Coach. Family Treatment Court is a community based, multidisciplinary program, involving judges, attorneys, the Department of Human Services (DHS) and family support and substance abuse professionals, designed to support families within the Juvenile Judicial System. Family Treatment Court provides a supportive structure that encourages a sober lifestyle for parents and, where possible, the reunification of families. The role of the Family Recovery Coach is to engage clients early in their recovery process and help guide them in accessing services to support their recovery.
Cierra Roquette has been hired for this part-time position. She currently is a contractor with Children and Families of Iowa where she helps families involved with DHS navigate the system and she also works with Four Oaks helping families experiencing mental health issues obtain needed resources. We believe her experience in helping families will assist our Family Treatment Court clients in being successful in their recovery.
