Family treatment court reunites parents with their children

Linn County Family Treatment Court, a partnership between courts and community professionals, participants go through substance abuse treatment and work on parenting skills. Federal funding runs out in September for the Linn court, along with four other pilot programs in the state, and the programs could come to an end unless legislators approve a judicial branch budget that includes more than $400,000 for family courts.
