Lana D. Harrison, Principal Investigator
Steven S. Martin, Co-Principal Investigator

Initiated: 2002

Funding Source: National Institute on Drug Abuse

Project Summary:

This survey provided estimates of the prevalence of certain treatment delivery practices within the criminal justice system and will expand current understanding of the organizational and structural issues that influence practice. This helped to provide a platform for the development of a new generation of research regarding systems issues. This study filled an immediate need for criminal justice and drug treatment stakeholders (e.g., policy makers, legislators, administrators, etc.) to identify general trends in the delivery of services and influencing factors.
