The power point emphasizes a study conducted by the the Urban Institute, Center for Court Innovation, & Research Triangle Institute, with funding from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), and it discusses the results of the study. The study and power point focus on answering 3 fundamental questions: Do drug courts reduce drug use, criminal behavior, and other associated problems? Which policies and practices make drug courts more or less effective in achieving their desired outcomes? Do drug courts generate cost savings for the criminal justice system or other public institutions?
