Managing and Sustaining Your Juvenile Drug Court

March 1, 2010

"Managing and Sustaining Your Juvenile Drug Court" is part one of a two-part series. Research has found that JDCs travel through a certain cycle - a "Juvenile Drug Court Development Cycle". Having a better understanding of that cycle and the challenges that each program faces will help practitioners make important adjustments and additions to keep their court on the right track. The technical assistance brief, "Managing and Sustaining Your Juvenile Drug Court", will help practitioners understand that cycle. To download, click here.

Part two is an assessment tool for juvenile drug courts. "Ensuring Fidelity to the Juvenile Drug Courts Strategies in Practice--A Program Component Scale" will help JDC administrators determine if there are any gaps in their programs and give concrete recommendations to strengthen program operations and team cohesiveness.
