The London Family Drug and Alcohol Court (FDAC) at the Central Family Court has been running since January 2008. FDAC offers an alternative form of care proceedings for parents and children in those cases where substance misuse is a key factor in the decision to bring proceedings.

FDAC uses a problem-solving court approach, which aims to help parents control their substance misuse so that they can be safely reunited with their children. If that is not possible, the aim is to ensure that children are placed permanently with family
members or elsewhere as speedily as possible.
