About the Course:
This course is based on three NIDA Notes articles. NIDA Notes is a large collection of brief, relevant articles focusing on current drug abuse treatment evidence.
Research Addresses Needs of Criminal Justice Staff and Offenders
explains how the Criminal Justice-Drug Abuse Treatment Studies (CJ-DATS) investigators have collaborated with the criminal justice partners to fashion and test science-based, practical tools for integrating drug abuse treatment in the Nation’s prisons and probation and parole programs.
High-Risk Drug Offenders Do Better With Close Judicial Supervision
recalls how low-risk offenders do equally well with and without regularly scheduled court appearances.
New Therapy Reduces Drug Abuse Among Patients With Severe Mental Illness
describes how a specially designed group intervention also improves patients’ functioning in the community.
All three articles are contained in one PDF.
