All Middlesex County buildings will remain closed to the general public until further notice due to COVID-19. Only select County services are available on an appointment basis.


Middlesex County established the Family Court Multi Disciplinary Team (MDT) and the Re-entry Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) in 1996.
The Family Court MDT recommends specific services for individual juveniles charged as delinquent; acts as an alternative to detention; and serves as a disposition option, upon adjudication of delinquency, for Family Court judges.  The Family Court MDT Coordinator refers youth for services, including drug and alcohol evaluation and maintains a database of clients and services.  The MDT Coordinator also acts as a resource person for the Family Court judges.
In the Juvenile Justice System, Re-entry refers to the period of community-based supervision and services that follow a juvenile’s release from a secure facility, JJC residential program, or other structured dispositional placement.    Committed youth and probationers returning from facilities and programs are referred to the Re-entry MDT by the Juvenile Justice System (JJS).   The Re-Entry MDT is the mechanism for providing additional support during this transitional period to foster the successful reintegration of juveniles into their communities.  The Re-entry MDT provides services to these juveniles that complements the supervision afforded by the JJC Parole and Juvenile Probation.
