Got a juvenile drug court? Considering starting one?
The MacArthur Foundation's juvenile justice reform initiative, Models for Change, recently released a set of evidence-based practice recommendations for juvenile drug courts.
Developed in a statewide project in Louisiana, the recommendations focus on
- screening and assessment;
- improving alcohol and drug treatment (along with treatment for co-occurring disorders); and
- outcome monitoring.
(Hat tip to Christa Myers of the Reclaiming Futures initiative in Hocking County, Ohio.)
