Alternative Tracks in Adult Drug Courts
More than two decades of research indicates which types of adult offenders are most in need of drug court services. Research shows that drug courts work best for offenders who are both high-risk and high-need. These high-risk and high-need offenders are in need of the full array of services embodied in the 10 Key Components of drug courts. It may not always be possible or desirable for a drug court to target high-risk and high-need participants exclusively. In some communities the drug court may be the most effective, or perhaps only, program serving as an alternative to incarceration that has staff members with expertise in managing drug-involved offenders. This webinar will describe the conceptual framework and evidence-based practice recommendations for designing alternative tracks within a drug court to serve various types of adult participants.
