Juvenile Drug Court Programs
(NCJ 184744) May 2001
OJJDP Juvenile Accountability Block Grants Series, Bulletin, 16 page(s)
Cooper, C. S.
Shares the perspectives of practitioners and policymakers who have helped to establish juvenile drug courts—intensive treatment programs that provide specialized services for drug-involved youth and their families. This Bulletin, part of OJJDP's Juvenile Accountability Incentive Block Grants series, describes the primary indicators of need, key elements of a drug court program, tasks in establishing a drug court and the critical issues planners must address, and the program's potential impact on the juvenile justice system. The resources provided within this Bulletin should facilitate the development of constructive, well-conceived programs that will improve the juvenile justice system's capacity to hold offenders accountable and protect the public.
