The following information is provided on each program: impact to date, cases eligible, special features, arrest to treatment program entry, treatment provider, treatment program duration, treatment program elements, contact with the court, acupuncture, other support services, urinalysis procedures, the result of treatment program completion, and funding sources.

Part IV has sample operational materials developed by drug court programs. These include program descriptions, court pleadings, orders, and rules relevant to drug case program operations; program procedures; participant information; participant contracts/agreements; and certificates of participant completion of treatment programs.
