Research / Themes / Shaping policy / Drug court collaborations
This project (called “eCourt”) is intended to address practical needs involving federal monitoring and reporting on drug courts, while also building basic knowledge on technology transfer and the role of information technology in advancing program effectiveness. eCourt encompasses dual research and development activities: (1) designing, developing, and pilot testing a web-based information technology (IT) system in eight drug courts, and (2) conducting a national survey of drug courts to examine their structure and operations, treatment and compliance management practices, use of IT, and the adoption of evidence-based treatment practices within the drug court setting. This project is part of the Criminal Justice Drug Abuse Treatment Studies (CJDATS) research collaborative.
Funded by a grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institutes of Health
