Drug Court Review

Call for Papers

The Drug Court Review is now accepting articles for an upcoming issue focusing on innovative treatments and approaches employed by specialized court programs to address the underlying issues of criminal justice involvement.

Changes in the fields of criminal justice, mental and behavioral health, medicine, and technology, as well as shifting trends in social problems, highlight the need for treatment court programs to also evolve in their responses. As such, topics of particular interest to this issue of Drug Court Review include, but are not limited to:

  • Family-centered approaches
  • Evidence-based treatment
  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
  • Inter-tribal and/or multi-jurisdictional transfers
  • Rapid responses or immediate linkages to treatment
  • New/promising treatment modalities or program structures

Submissions are due July 31, 2018, and publication is expected in December 2018.
