Annotation: Grantees under the U.S. Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Assistance’s (BJA’s) Adult Drug Court Program (ADCP) provide data on their projects for the period April-September 2016, which involved implementing and enhancing drug treatment courts that integrate substance abuse treatment, mandatory drug testing, sanctions and incentives, and transitional services in a judicially supervised court setting.
Abstract: Under the ADCP, adult drug courts are encouraged to target nonviolent offenders at high risk for recidivating and a high need for substance abuse treatment. For the period April-September 2016, the graduation from ADCPs increased 2.6 percent to 57.2 percent during April-September 2016 compared to 54.6 percent for the same period in 2015. For the current period, the grantees are generally accepting more high-risk, high-need participants (77.3 percent of new participants). A total of 11,415 participants were enrolled in the ADCP, a 7-percent reduction in participants from the same period in 2015. Of participants in the program at least 90 days who were administered drug tests, 30.1 percent tested positive for an illegal substance, higher than the 18 percent who tested positive for the same period in 2015. A table shows the number of fiscal years operating by type of grant (statewide, implementation, or enhancement), as well as the average amount of funds received, the minimum amount, and the maximum amount. Also shown by type of grant are the number and percentage of rural, suburban, urban, and tribal ADCP grantees. Time spent in the program is reported for participants who graduated (n=2,102). Data are also reported on race for both successful and unsuccessful participants. Reasons are reported for why persons were not admitted to the ADCP. 13 tables and 5 figures
