A Prevention Intervention for Low-Risk Drug Court Clients -poster

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



Abstract:

Drug courts are specialized interventions aimed at providing court-supervised treatment to drug offenders. Based on a model of client addiction, drug courts are supported by the literature as an effective method of reducing drug use and recidivism. Recent research, however, suggests that a low-risk segment of the drug court population may not fit the drug court’s model of addiction and may not be best served by the standard components of drug court treatment. The components of a modified intervention for low-risk drug offenders will be presented, as well as results and implications from a pilot study of the intervention.
