Complex Cases Facing Treatment Courts - New England Association for Recovery Court Professionals (Presentation Slides)

The New England ATTC, in partnership with the New England Association of Recovery Court Professionals (NEARCP), is continuing to offer a bi-monthly targeted technical assistance series for justice professionals to advance the treatment of persons with or at risk of substance use disorders involved in the justice system. These presentation slides are from the training session titled, "Complex Cases Facing Drug Courts" presented by Helen Harberts, M.A., J.D., and Brian Meyer, Ph.D., LCP, that took place on June 16th at 12PM EST. During this webinar, the panel discussed several actual cases from New England Drug Court Programs involving participants who have struggled with drug court program requirements and whose behavior has been especially challenging for the drug court team to manage and address successfully. Experts provided their recommendations on whether sanctions were appropriate, whether the team was considering all treatment options, and whether a termination was appropriate.
