Treatment for Substance & Other Addictions
Drug Courts are fast becoming the most effective and efficient course of action for substance abusing offenders involved in the criminal justice system. Since the inception of drug courts in 1989, these programs have grown to total approximately 1600 that are currently functioning or in the formal planning process (www.ndci.org, 2-25-2006). If constructed correctly, a drug court and a drug court team can reduce the burden on the current system at hand, and lead to a decrease in long-term recidivism for the participants. Additionally, a drug court can save money to the jurisdiction in which it operates and provide an effective tool for supervising and rehabilitating participations into being productive members of the community. If crafted unsuccessfully, a program will provide an undo burden upon the system, while being economically inept.
Our staff, trained by the National Drug Court Institute can help your Drug Court program in the phases of Program Development and Program Enhancement. Whether on the ground floor of the program or while your program is up and running, our consulting services can help benefit your Drug Court program to become more efficient.
Drug Court Evaluation
A sound Drug Court Program Evaluation may be the most important and often overlooked part of any Drug Court program. Why? Because an evaluation tells you a couple of things.
#1 Is your Drug Court working effectively and efficiently?
#2 Is your Drug Court achieving the goals that it set out to do?
I’ll never forget meeting a drug court team that was still forming, but had been in operation for a couple of months. When I met them, they said their drug court was working great. I said, “OK, How do you know?” They said, “We just know.” This story is often the case with programs developing across the country. This is why it is important to have an evaluator on board since the inception of the program. A good evaluator is what will aid getting a program funded long past any grant funds. Program evaluators work in conjunction with professors from Western Michigan University.
