3 What is a Drug Treatment Court? The Mission of Drug Courts is to stop the abuse of alcohol and other drugs related criminal activity. Drug Courts offer a compelling choice for individuals whose criminal justice involvement stems from AOD use participation in treatment. Drug Courts transform the roles of both criminal justice practitioners and AOD treatment providers. Drug Courts create an environment with clear and certain rules. The rules Are definite, easy to understand, and most important compliance is within the individual s control. Drug Courts use the leveraged power of the court - the external controls so that the individual can develop the internal controls on the Road to Recovery.
4 How Do We Do It? 10 Operational Characteristics that all Drug Treatment Courts Share as Benchmarks for Performance!
5 10 Key Components Key Component #1: Drug courts integrate alcohol and other drug treatment\ services with justice system case processing. Key Component #2 Using a nonadversarial approach, prosecution and defense counsel promote public safety while protecting participants due process rights. Key Component #3: Eligible participants are identified early and promptly placed in the drug court program. *** Key Component #4: Drug courts provide access to a continuum of alcohol, drug, and other related treatment and rehabilitation services. Key Component #5: Abstinence is monitored by frequent alcohol and other drug testing. Key Component #6: A coordinated strategy governs drug court responses to participants compliance. Key Component #7: Ongoing judicial interaction with each drug court participant is essential. Key Component #8: Monitoring and evaluation measure the achievement of program goals and gauge effectiveness. Key Component #9: Continuing interdisciplinary education promotes effective drug court planning, implementation, and operations. Key Component #10: Forging partnerships among drug courts, public agencies, and community-based organizations generates local support and enhances drug court Effectiveness. ***

(addiction to drugs/alcohol, major psychiatric disorders, lack daily living skills, employment skills, etc.)

43 Positive Judicial Attributes Fairness Attentiveness Enthusiasm Respectfulness Consistency/reliability Caring Knowledge Guiding Principle #6 Take a Judicial Leadership Role
44 Judicial Leadership Best Practices Participants Perceptions of the Judge The primary mechanism by which the Drug Courts reduced substance use and crime was through the participants perceptions of and attitudes toward the judge. Significantly better outcomes were achieved by participants who rated the judge as being knowledgeable about their cases and who reported that the judge knew them by name, encouraged them to succeed, emphasized the importance of drug and alcohol treatment, was not intimidating or unapproachable, gave them a chance to tell their side of the story, and treated them fairly and with respect. ( The Multisite Adult Drug Court Evaluation, by National Institute of Justice and researchers from The Urban Institute s Justice Policy Center, 5 Year Study, May 2012)
