Greater Cleveland Drug Court Team Visits
The Hitchcock Center for Women -
On Monday, April 17, 2017 Greater Cleveland Drug Court Program Coordinator, Dr. Daryl Jackson, led a Drug Court team visit to the Hitchcock Center for Women facility at 1227 Ansel Road in Cleveland.
Dr. Daryl D. Jackson reports that this site visit is very important to the Greater Cleveland Drug Court because he feels that it is important to start to address more gender-specific issues exclusively surrounding women with trauma that are currently active participants within the Greater Cleveland Drug Court Program. “The trauma-informed care approach acknowledges the high prevalence of traumatic experiences in persons who will receive services through the Greater Cleveland Drug Court. This approach also acknowledges that when staff members possess a thorough understanding of the profound neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects of trauma and violence on the individual and family; women and girls have better outcomes of success and can go on to live complete and healthy lives,” says Dr. Jackson.
