Seven Deadly Sins Series


Juvenile Drug Courts (JDCs) often face important decisions when developing or revising their programs. These decisions affect JDC practices and can have far reaching implications for JDC youth. In this series, titled “The Seven Deadly Sins of Juvenile Drug Courts,” the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges identifies seven specific practices that can be detrimental to a juvenile drug court and its youth. In addition, each article proposes short-term and long-term solutions to these practices with the goals of increasing JDC effectiveness and positively influencing youth.
