ANNOTATION: “The most extensive study of drug courts -- a five-year examination of 23 courts and six comparison jurisdictions in eight states -- found that these court programs can significantly decrease drug use and criminal behavior, with positive outcomes ramping upward as participants sensed their judge treated them more fairly, showed greater respect and interest in them, and gave them more chances to talk during courtroom proceedings…Drug courts save an average of $5,680 per participant, returning a net benefit of $2 for every $1 spent.” Access to an executive study and the following four volumes is provided at this website: “The Multi-Site Adult Drug Court Evaluation: Study Overview and Design” by Shelli B.
