Rural Drug Courts: Challenges and Solutions - January 29, 2014

The focus of this webinar is upon the special challenges encountered by drug courts and their treatment providers in rural and frontier areas of the country and responses that have proven affective. This webinar also drew on a Technical Assistance Guide on Drug Court Treatment Services developed through the BJA Drug Court Technical Assistance Project (soon to be published). Presenters provided a detailed look into each of these challenges and how some of the existing rural programs are addressing some of these issues through use of innovative use of technology such as Skype or Teleconferencing, Virtual Counseling, Telehealth services, etc.
