What is a Campus Drug Court (Back on TRAC)?

Pioneered at Colorado State University in 2001, Campus Drug Courts (a.k.a. Back on TRAC) adopt the integrated public health-public safety principles and components of the successful Drug Court model, and apply them to the college environment. These programs specifically target college students whose excessive use of drugs or alcohol have created serious consequences for themselves or others, and are jeopardizing their ability to complete their college education. The programs hold students to a high level of accountability while providing long-term, holistic treatment and rigorous compliance monitoring. They unite campus leaders, student development practitioners, treatment providers and health professionals with their governmental, judicial and treatment counterparts in the surrounding community. This partnership can then serve as a hub for comprehensive campus/community strategies for dealing with underage and excessive drinking, as well as illicit drug use (Monchick & Gehring, 2006).
