Summary

Examine an innovative strategy for fighting the war on drugs! Drug Courts in Operation: Current Research provides an in-depth look at an increasingly utilized approach to rehabilitating substance abusers. Drug courts offer their participants a chance to better themselves by providing support and structure to those that do not have it in their life, offering substance abusers a chance to participate in rehabilitation in lieu of incarceration. This insightful book examines the history of drug courts as a principal treatment alternative to incarceration, outlines the risk factors of children living with drug-addicted parents, and introduces a program to help strengthen families. The book delivers vital information on: introducing programs to help prevent narcotic use by children with drug-addicted parents the need for cultural- and gender-specific treatment plans, especially in the treatment of women and African-American males treatment dosage effects the importance of length of participation to outcomes focus groups designed to help drug court participants with their employment needs predictors of engagement in court-mandated treatment programs how legal coercion of high-risk patients via the threat of incarceration motivates participants to succeed
