14 Conference Schedule 9:00 am Welcome Joan Standora, PhD, LADC, CASAC MAC Rotunda Director, Substance Abuse Counseling, Kingsborough Community College Dr. Stuart Suss Interim President and Provost, Kingsborough Community College 9:15 Opening Remarks MAC Rotunda Hon. Marcia Hirsch President, New York Association of Drug Treatment Court Professionals Hon. Judy Harris Kluger Chief of Policy and Planning, New York State Unified Court System 9:30-10:45 Morning Plenary MAC Rotunda Application of Trauma Informed Care Principles Michael DeFalco, PsyD Director of Military and Integrated Services Bridge Back to Life Center, Inc. J. Daniel DeBruin Henry Kurcman Resource Coordinator III Monroe Supreme and County Court Coordinator of Criminal Justice Services NYS OASAS The focus of this presentation is to highlight the principles of trauma-informed care, and to discuss the practical application of these principles in the criminal justice and other settings. The training will focus initially on explaining the relationship between traumatic exposure (both developmentally and as an adult) and an increased risk for, among other issues, substance misuse and criminal justice involvement. It will also explore how developmental trauma affects individuals from childhood through adulthood. The latter part of the training will focus on how trauma-informed principles have been applied in a number of treatment court settings, and will outline the practical application of these principles in other settings as well. Participants will have an opportunity for peer discussion and consultation about how trauma-informed care can become a larger part of the settings in which they currently work.

15 Workshops: Session One 11:00 am 12:15 pm Evaluating the Fidelity of a DWI Court *CLE Eligible Session M146 Honorable Marcia Hirsch, Presiding Judge, Queens DWI Court Dr. Shelly Cohen, Stony Brook Research and Evaluation Consulting Peter Manzo, MSW, Court Analyst, Queens DWI Court Recent research demonstrated that the use of program evaluation data to inform court policies and procedures has strong positive effects on reductions in recidivism rates and overall program costs. This presentation will summarize the results of a process and outcome evaluation of the Queens DWI Court from the perspectives of the independent evaluator, the presiding judge, and a program case manager. The fidelity of the court processes to the 10 guiding principles of the DWI Courts will be discussed, as well as participant intake, case processing characteristics, and in-program, and postgraduation outcomes. Methods of operationalizing measures of fidelity using data for the Unified Court System s Management Information System and other sources will be discussed, as will the use of evaluation data to improve program effectiveness. An Overview of the DSM-V Changes M147 Kevin Wadalavage, MA, LMHC, CASAC, MAC, NCAC II, Outreach Training Institute The DSM is used as the primary tool to justify admission to substance and mental health treatment. This presentation will review changes in the addiction category and other mental health related areas that have occurred with the May 2013 release of the DSM-V. Areas covered will include an overall approach to the DSM-V with more consideration for neurobiology directing the diagnostic groupings and descriptors, as well as the changes in the addiction related and non-addiction related categories. Science of Addiction and Recovery *CLE Eligible Session M411 Anthony Rizzuto, CASAC, Seafield Center Ed Olsen, LCSW, CASAC, SAP, Director Bridge Back to Life This presentation will examine addiction as a brain disease from which people can and do recover. The presenters will discuss the similarities between addiction and other illnesses that affect behavior and how it is possible to maintain long term recovery from addiction just as with other chronic illnesses. Addiction is a lifelong health issue, requiring people to manage their illness as they would other chronic conditions; it is not a question of morals or willpower. This presentation is derived from the work and research of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and NIDA Director, Nora Volkow.

16 Implementing Trauma-Informed Care Principles in Your Program *CLE Eligible Session M208 Christina Ruffino, Project Manager for Drug Court Programs, Center for Court Innovation Sky L. Peña-Davis, Regional Project Manager, Office of Policy and Planning, NYS Unified Court System Criminal justice involved and substance abusing individuals historically experience incidents of trauma. If individuals suffering from trauma do not receive specialized intervention from trained staff, prospects for long-term recovery are diminished. A trauma-informed approach in drug courts and substance treatments programs is essential to effectively address the multiple and unique needs of trauma survivors. This session assumes prior knowledge of trauma-informed care principles and will focus primarily on ideas and practical solutions for implementing trauma-informed care principles into an existing drug court or program. This presentation includes a brief refresher on trauma-informed care principles, identification of areas where individuals may be re-traumatized in criminal justice settings, and practical solutions for implementing trauma-informed care principles into existing drug courts or treatment. New York Drug Court Higher Education Initiative *CLE Eligible Session M209 Gregg Roth, Esq., Associate Director of Drug Court Programs, Center for Court Innovation Valerie Raine, Esq., Director of Drug Court Programs, Center for Court Innovation The New York Drug Court Higher Education Initiative is a Bureau of Justice Assistance funded project designed to assist young adult drug court participants gain access to higher education. Through partnerships between SUNY schools and drug courts, drug court participants get the benefit of assistance and support while navigating the college enrollment, financial aid, and other processes. During this session, the speakers will discuss the roadmap, a series of manuals created by the Initiative s planning and advisory committee, which describe the step-by-step process for building the bridge between drug court and college. The speakers will discuss how the roadmap can be used to guide drug courts and colleges through the process and how drug courts can adapt the Practitioner s Manual and other documents to best meet the needs of their participants. There will also be a discussion about the two pilot sites in Binghamton and Albany, the lessons learned, and pitfalls to avoid. Alcohol Monitoring- What s in Your Toolbox? M210 Jacquie Sheehey, Judicial Services Liaison, Smart Start, Inc. This presentation focuses on the alcohol monitoring technologies available to drug/dwi courts and identifies technologies that can be used in step-down sanctions so clients remain alcohol free.

17 MAC Rotunda Lunch, Networking and Exhibition 12:15 Keynote Address 12:45 Introductions Gary Butchen, LCSWR, CASAC, SAP Past President, Addiction Treatment Providers Association Keynote Speaker Magistrate Albert Zweig Denver Drug Court Albert Zweig currently sits as a magistrate in the Denver District Drug Court. However, years before taking the bench he stood before that same Court as a defendant charged with a felony drug violation and subsequently served two years as a drug court probationer there. In this presentation, he will focus on his experiences with addiction, treatment and the law, exploring some of the lessons he has learned from his varied and layered drug court perspectives. Award Presentations 1: Treatment Professional Award Kevin Wadalavage, MA, LMHC, CASAC, MAC, NCACII This award is presented to an individual or organization that exemplifies significant commitment to giving back to a community, assisting others in the treatment field to change their lives, and promotes opportunities for treatment and recovery in the criminal justice system Rosalie Cuva Outstanding Service Award Michael Rempel, Director of Research, Center for Court Innovation This award acknowledges an individual s efforts and accomplishments in the prevention, treatment and recovery

18 Workshops: Session Two 1:30 pm 2:45 pm Constitutional Compromises in Problem Solving Courts *CLE Eligible Session M146 Dr. Virginia Barber Rioja, Clinical Director and Supervisor, EAC Brooklyn LINK Hon. Matthew J. D Emic, Kings County Supreme Court Claudia Montoya, Esq., Legal Aid Society Specialty courts such as drug and mental health courts were created to accommodate offenders with specific needs that were not adequately addressed in traditional courts. These courts rely on the assumption that treatment interventions are more appropriate than punishment for some individuals. The main goal of problem solving courts is to provide positive case outcomes, including reducing recidivism and creating safer communities. However the accomplishment of therapeutic goals can be at odds with procedural fairness. Some mental health law scholars have warned about a difficult relationship between therapeutic jurisprudence and due process. For example, in the context of non-traditional roles adopted by lawyers in mental health courts, defense attorneys think more in terms of the defendant s best clinical interests as opposed to the defendant s best legal interests. In the interest of speeding the release of mentally ill individuals and linking them to treatment, an adversarial defense can actually be seen as counterproductive (Reisig, 2002). Speakers will use case examples to illustrate and discuss some of the ethical dilemmas that can arise in specialty treatment courts. Utilization of EMDR in Relapse Prevention M208 Bill Solz, LCSW,CASAC This presentation will provide an overview of how Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) was developed and how it works. In addition, the presentation will discuss the value of EMDR as an evidenced-based practice, and how it has come to be regarded as a 'state of the art' treatment in terms of addressing acute and post-traumatic stress disorder. The attendees will also come to appreciate how effective a treatment it has been in addressing relapse prevention. As such, several key areas will be reviewed including: 1. The role of stress in terms of promoting relapse, 2. The application of EMDR with regard to effectively resolving accumulated stress, 3. Utilization of the Popky protocol in terms of reducing one's cravings, and 4. Utilization of the Miller Feeling State Addiction protocol in terms of eliminating the previous linkage between positive feeling states and drug use.

19 An Overview of New York Serving Adolescents in Need of Treatment (NY-SAINT) and the Seven Challenges M209 Maria Morris-Groves, MSED, Project Director, NY-SAINT The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, through the Research Foundation for Mental Health, has been awarded a three year cooperative agreement to fund NY-SAINT. One of the required tasks of this project is to implement the use of an evidenced based project. OASAS chose to implement The Seven Challenges. The Seven Challenges Program is designed specifically for adolescents with drug problems. The program seeks to motivate a decision and commitment to change and to support success in implementing the desired changes. This presentation will focus on the NY-SAINT project with specific emphasis on The Seven Challenges. The Impact of the Rockefeller Drug Law Reforms *CLE Eligible Session M147 Leslie Kellam, Director of Research, Division of Criminal Justice Services, Office of Justice Research and Performance Michael Rempel, Research Director, Center for Court Innovation Leslie Bates, Phd. Program Research Specialist, New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services Dennis Reilly, Deputy Director of Court Programs, Center for Court Innovation Researchers from the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS), the Center for Court Innovation (CCI), and the Vera Institute for Justice are each examining the impact of the Rockefeller Drug Law reforms on various aspects of the criminal justice system. The research teams will discuss their findings in a joint presentation on the drug law reforms. DCJS will summarize arrest, indictment, and incarceration trends for felony drug offenders, and will discuss the impact of the reforms on judicial diversion participation. CCI will discuss their evaluation of the judicial diversion program, and will explore how outcomes vary by county and region. Vera will discuss drug court and recidivism outcomes among judicial diversion participants in NYC. They will also describe changes in case processing for felony drug and specified property offenders, and will discuss the impact of the reforms on sentencing practices in NYC Courts. Developing Coping Skills Through Sports M210 Leroy West-Spicer, Case Manager, Brooklyn Treatment Court Herb Hardwick, Research Coordinator, Brooklyn Treatment Court This presentation will discuss creating change through sports participation. The speakers will discuss using games to develop personal self-management such as social interaction skills, stress management, time management, and problem solving and coping skills.

21 Unique Challenges for Working with the Military Population: A Clinical and Court Perspective *CLE Eligible Session M146 Carol Davidson, LCSW, CASAC, MSW, Elan Robin, LMSW, Veterans Care Coordinator, Brooklyn Veterans Treatment Court Dennis Reilly, Deputy Director of Court Programs, Center for Court Innovation This presentation will provide an overview of military services, military culture, combat and trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, and homecoming issues.

Asa Scott, B.A., CASAC, A.R.E.B.A This presentation will provide participants with practical understanding of techniques and strategies to engage adolescent substance abusers, who have a court mandate, to engage in treatment. Presenters will discuss how to utilize Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT), Motivational Intervention, Dialectical Behavioral Theory, and Thinking for a Change all evidence-based models that address the needs of this population. Specifically, presenters will address barriers to treatment within the status quo practices and how the use of evidence-based models will work with this population. Dispelling the Myths of the Criminal Justice Client M411 Janetta Astone-Twerell, PhD, Director of Research and Evaluation, Samaritan Village Chu Hsiao, Research Assistant, Samaritan Village Thomas LaBarca, Director of Admissions and Assessment, Samaritan Village In recent years, there has been a substantial increase in the number of clients entering drug treatment through the criminal justice system. While the majority of staff (63%) feel that mandated clients are different from self-referred clients, staff receive little or no training on how to address the specific needs of these clients. Many hold ideas that mandated clients have less motivation, are less satisfied, and have less positive treatment outcomes compared with self-referred clients. Yet there are few, if any, studies examining addiction staff s attitudes toward mandated clients. This session provides information comparing self-referred and mandated clients retention, discharge status, and treatment satisfaction. Presenters will provide information to help dispel some myths about criminal justice clients using data-based research findings. Presenters will also provide strategies to reduce the stigma and negative attitudes toward the mandated client in order to enhance overall treatment outcomes.

22 Don t Be Scared: ATI Risk Assessment and Management *CLE Eligible Session M147 Dr. Merrill Rotter, MD, Medical Director EAC and NYC TASC Dr. Virginia Barber Rioja, Clinical Director and Supervisor of EAC Brooklyn LINK Tania Peterson Chandler, Esq., Regional Director, NYC Programs for EAC This presentation will explain the basics of risk assessment for court -based decision making and treatment planning purposes, review the different kinds of risks and their associated factors, and discuss relevant case management issues. Clients referred for diversion through drug and/or mental health courts often present risks that are of concern to courts and community providers-risks that must be assessed and addressed by the boundary spanning ATI program, both at initial evaluation and throughout the court mandate. Interestingly, the risk issues that worry the court may not necessarily entirely match those which create provider unease. Court, clinical and ATI staff need to appreciate this distinction, recognize that there are varying risks (e.g. violence, suicide, criminality), each which has its own set of relevant factors to be assessed and addressed. Recovery Coaching: A Tool to Better Assist Criminal Justice Clients in Treatment M209 Robert Anderson, LCSW, CASAC, Odyssey House, Inc. Dr. Gary Harmon, PhD, Director of Research and Grants, Odyssey House This presentation will focus on planning for and initiating peer mentoring as a crucial support for individuals in these multiple systems of care (i.e. Criminal Justice, OASAS) and enhancing outcomes. This session will focus on lessons learned and forward thinking approaches regarding cross systems collaboration, implementation of evidence-based and evidence-informed approaches, funding mechanisms, and developing new models of care to fit the need of persons served. The evidence-informed practice of recovery coaching, integrating co-located services across the prevention, treatment and recovery framework will be discussed. Detailed emphasis on cross systems collaboration as a vehicle to improve outcomes will be shown through various lenses of child welfare, juvenile justice, criminal justice, and OASAS. The development and formal accomplishments of a multi-year consortium will outline how impactful cross systems work is and its necessity in the current economic times. The onset of co-located substance abuse services in child welfare settings will show improved clinical care and cost savings. This model will be expanded to include peer mentoring as a formal recovery support for individuals struggling with progress while navigating the myriad systems they encounter, including various drug courts, probation and other supervision. A detailed description of recovery coaching and its benefits will be presented and its role in the development of recovery oriented systems of care. Data will support the efficacy of this approach and the motivation supplied to support the individuals served in recovery, as well as the improved outcomes that benefit the various systems charged with working with this population.

23 Testing Update on Designer Drugs and Pain Killers M210 Vincent Happ, MS, Strategic Account Manager, Redwood Toxicology Laboratory This presentation will provide an update on the most recent understanding of designer drugs. Discussion will take place on what drugs can be detected and how these drugs impact users.

Incorporating Non-Addictive Medication in Drug Courts TBA Horatio Capote, MD, Medical Director of the Division of Neuropsychiatry, DENT, Medical Director of Addiction Services, Brylin Hospital This presentation will provide information about a non-narcotic, non-addictive medication that is FDA approved for the treatment of alcohol dependence and opioid dependence. Attendees will learn how Health Care Reform expands medication access to offender populations, how these new services are being funded and implemented, and how to integrate the medication within the court processes, counseling and other recovery networks. A drug court participant will speak about her experience with the medication as part of a comprehensive drug court treatment program. PAC 1/2 page add
