Annotation: This report reviews 1998 activities of the National Institute of Justice’s Arrestee Drug Abuse Monitoring (ADAM) program.
Abstract: During 1998 the program increased its methodological rigor, moved further toward a system for locally initiated research, strengthened its role as a research and policy platform and expanded its publication and dissemination of data and findings. The ADAM network exists in 35 communities across the country—12 sites added last year and 23 from ADAM’s predecessor, the Drug Use Forecasting program. The National Institute of Justice has begun developing an ADAM international component, providing start-up assistance to Australia, Chile, England, Scotland, and South Africa. The program began redesigning the ADAM interview to focus more specifically on issues of interest to policy makers and practitioners. When redesign and testing are completed, the new interview will allow the program to calculate the prevalence of various levels of drug dependency among arrestees, determine the need for treatment and provide information on drug market dynamics. The report discusses development and methodology of the ADAM program, ADAM Adult Interview Instrument, 1998 Adult Program Findings in 35 cities and Juvenile Program Findings in 13 cities.
