This guide provides a series of recommendations for juvenile drug courts along three critical areas—screening and assessment (Chapter 2), treatment (Chapter 3), and outcome monitoring (Chapter 4).  The Recommendations emulate the characteristics of a “model” juvenile drug court, and reflect the goals of the Louisiana Supreme Court Drug Court Office that were developed as part of its Models for Change project.
