Drug Court Found Successful

Sponsored by:

A nearly ten-year-old California experiment with a once-r adical substance treatment program is proving effective in cutting both crime and drug abuse.

A study shows arrests of drug court graduates dropped 85 percent for two years after they successfully completed treatment.

The state study of three-thousand participants from 34 counties also finds that they are likely to get jobs and stay off drugs at least while they are under intense supervision in the program.
