About the Course:
Treatment Drug Courts: Integrating Substance Abuse Treatment With Legal Case Processing provides clinicians, administrators, and policymakers with the information they need to plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate treatment drug courts. The number of programs that integrate drug treatment into the pretrial processing of criminal cases has grown exponentially in the last several years. This publication highlights the most successful of them and presents relevant information on financial, legal, and ethical issues. This course focuses on the nine key issues that must be addressed during the design stage for a fully operational drug court. This course covers Chapter 4 only.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Treatment Drug Courts: Integrating Substance Abuse Treatment With Legal Case Processing (TIP 23): Chapter 4: Designing the Program created by SAMHSA
