National Cross Site Evaluation of Juvenile Drug Courts and Reclaiming Futures

Delivered at the 2012 Joint Meeting on Adolescent Treatment Effectiveness (JMATE), this presentation outlines an ongoing multi-site, four-year evaluation of the Juvenile Drug Court (JDC) and Reclaiming Futures (RF) Initiative.  Under the initiative, juvenile drug courts integrate the 16-element JDC model with the 6-step RF model.  The Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) at the University of Arizona, Carnevale Associates, and Chestnut Health Systems are conducting the evaluation to:

  • Assess operations of the JDC/RF models using established indices for performance, efficiencies, and cost effectiveness
  • Improve the empirical knowledge base about juvenile courts, the JDC model, and the RF model
  • Analyze the efficacy of combined JDC/RF efforts
  • Conduct case studies using administrative, collaborative, and quality indices and the sixteen key elements of Juvenile Drug Courts
  • Evaluate the potential for replication of the combined JDC/RF model
