Risk and Need QuadrantsStandard Drug Court Track(10 Key Components)Status CalendarIntensive TreatmentCompliance is proximalRestrictive ConsequencesFocus consequences on treatment and supervisionSpecialized Track(Treatment emphasis)Noncompliance calendar Intensive treatmentTreatment is proximalFocus consequences on treatmentSpecialized Track(Accountability emphasis)Status CalendarPro-social rehabilitationPrevention ServicesAbstinence & compliance are proximalSpecialized Track(Diversion emphasis)Noncompliance calendarPrevention servicesFocus consequences on abstinenceHighLowHighLowHigh Risk/ High Need(Standard Drug Court Track)Scheduled Status Hearing with the JudgeIntensive Outpatient Treatment with FSGNOConsequences for treatment and supervisionCompliance is a proximal goalGraduation Sanction/restrictive consequencesPrescribed Medication allowed

Generally Substance DependentPossess antisocial personality featuresPrior failures in treatmentEarly onset of Substance UseUnable to be a good parent, hold a job, or attend schoolWill need vocational skills trainingTreatment and Supervision attendance are proximal goals (short term)Sanctions should be immediate for missing treatment or supervisionBefore sanctioning for new drug use they need time to be in treatmentResponse to positive drug tests should be treatment oriented

High Risk/Low Need(Emphasis on Accountability)

Scheduled Status Hearing with the JudgePro-Social Rehabilitation (People, Places & Things)Prevention ServicesAbstinence and Compliance are proximal

Need Social Skills Training and Accountability with close monitoringScheduled Status Hearings-Judge to monitor and sanction due to high risk of noncompliance with monitoringMay not meet dependence criteria and Intensive treatment option may put them at more risk for exposure to drug usePsycho educational groups to provide education of negative effects of drugs and alcoholEducation to help re-enter society without drug and alcoholAbstinence and Compliance are short term and attainable goals-sanctions needed for missing treatment and supervision.

Low Risk/High Need(Emphasis on Treatment)

Status Hearings only for noncomplianceIntensive Outpatient Treatment with FSGNOConsequences focused on treatmentTreatment is a proximal goalPrescribed medication allowed

Substance DependantMental IllnessPoor Coping SkillsNeed Intensive Treatment and Supportive InterventionRegular status hearings are not necessary because they may expose them to high risk behaviorsQuick and immediate sanctions are a mustMonthly Status Hearings are acceptableMust be in separate groups from High Risk offendersNeed vocational and educational servicesPoor attendance should get a immediate judicial sanctionRelapse is a distal goal (long term)-should get a treatment sanction

Low Risk/Low Need

Status Hearing for noncompliancePrevention ServicesConsequences are focused on abstinenceUsually productive in life (work, school, parenting)Combining them with HRHN (Drug Court) would expose them to antisocial behaviorNo scheduled status hearings are necessary-only noncomplianceMay not require Intensive Outpatient GroupsMay need psycho educational groups or less intensive treatmentAbstinence is a proximal (short term) goal-immediate sanctionTreatment plan should include prevention

Drug Court

Program OutlineCurrentlyOptionsDefendants sentenced to Drug Court receive ALL of the afore mentioned services inclusive of individualized treatment.Defendants sentenced to Intensive Probation receive case management and are NOT ELIGIBLE for any of the afore mentioned services available through the SAMHSA Grant.Defendants that need case management would be sentenced to Court Intervention Services and screened for a treatment track. Cases that would fall into the traditional Drug Court track (High Risk/High Need) will be re-alloted to a felony Drug Court Section and the High Risk/Low Need track would be transferred to Section C for supervision. All others will remain in their sentencing section to be monitored by the Case manager assigned to that track.
