Implementing and Sustaining Evidence-Based Drug Treatment: Lessons from Implementation Science

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

There is a compelling need to expand access to effective drug treatment for offenders on probation and parole. An estimated two-thirds of probationers have histories of illegal drug use, yet only about 25% report receiving treatment while on probation. Parolees have even higher rates of drug abuse than probationers, and similar lack of treatment engagement. Given their demonstrated effect on reducing relapse and recidivism, expanding access to well-implemented drug treatment programs incorporating principles of effective treatment for offenders can improve public safety as well as public health. Yet, efforts to expand treatment access are often hampered by a number of structural, organizational, and offender factors. Lessons from an emerging science and theory of program implementation are reviewed and their relevance for drug treatment in community corrections settings is discussed. This research and theory base suggests a number of strategies for enhancing access to evidence-based treatment for offenders under community supervision.
