Women in Treatment Courts
February 22, 2017
While drug treatment courts have significantly fewer women in their programs than men, they have been developing specific tracks designed to serve the needs and interests of women. These programs acknowledge that women’s treatment needs are often different than those for men and as such, they should be provided with gender-responsive treatment to facilitate their recovery.
Hon. William G. Schma and Valerie Moore conducted an interactive webinar session entitled, “Women in the Treatment Courts,” on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017 for the National Drug Court Resource Center.
