The Essex County Juvenile Drug Court (JDC) was designed to provide integrated case management and substance abuse treatment services to referred non-violent juvenile offenders from across the North Shore of Massachusetts through the Salem and Lynn juvenile courts. Process and outcome monitoring activities were conducted by JSI, in collaboration with program staff, in order to assess ongoing program activities and serve as a basis for discussion toward program improvement. JSI also coordinated efforts related to collection and reporting of the GAIN (Global Appraisal of Individual Needs) required under the CSAT grant.
