About the Course:

This report provides an update of drug court and other problem-solving court activity. It provides summary results from the National Survey on Drug Courts and Other Problem-solving Courts conducted by the National Drug Court Institute. A section is dedicated to major drug court research literature as well as state-specific drug court legislation and the amount of each state’s appropriation supporting such court programs. The report also provides key information about current drug court models, populations, and participant drug-of-choice trends.

This course is based on the reading-based online article, Painting the Current Picture: A National Report Card on Drug Courts and Other Problem-Solving Court Programs in the United States, Volume 2, Number 1 created by Douglas B. Marlow, J.D., Ph.D., Rachel Casebolt, and C. West Huddleston III
