Hillsborough County - Southern District Adult Drug Court Evaluation
State: New Hampshire
Client(s): SAMHSA - CSAT
Service: Applied Research & Evaluation
JSI will provide program monitoring and evaluation services. The HCDC will utilize a range of evidence-based practices during screening, assessment, and treatment. Because the HCDC recognizes that most offenders do not have a single targeted problem and that it is the responsibility of treatment and rehabilitation programs to adapt to and meet the specific needs of individuals, these evidence-based tools are used since together they provide a comprehensive picture of each offender’s criminogenic, substance use, and mental health risks and needs.
Once offenders are accepted into the program, they engage in a more thorough bio-psycho-social assessment with a clinician familiar with both addiction and mental health evaluation and treatment. The treatment interventions and therapeutic approach of treatment will also be evidenced-based. All participation activities, including engagement in treatment and compliance with drug court requirements, will be documented using the Drug Court Tracking Database, and MS Access database developed by JSI specifically for Adult Treatment Drug Courts.
HCDC will increase treatment access to the target population as well as provide services to a larger number of clients. This funding will support the expansion of the drug court treatment and case management staff so that a broad array of services may be offered to, initially, 45 and ultimately 50 participants per year.
