Treatment of Pregnant and Parenting Women: The Use of Medication Assisted Treatment

Presented by Hendree Jones, PhD

April 22, 2014

Every day in the United States, 24 babies are diagnosed and treated for withdrawal from prenatal-exposure opioids and 18 women die as a result of a prescription painkiller overdose. These numbers, which represent marked increases from 10 years ago, relate closely to increase prescribing of opioid medications during the past decade. As the rates of opioid misuse increase in the general population, the rates of misuse also increase in the pregnant population bringing with it the intersection of drug addiction treatment and the judicial system. Helping individuals stop their opioid misuse and recover from addiction is a challenge and supporting women who are pregnant represents especially perplexing challenges. This webinar will summarize contextual and co-morbid factors observed among many women with substance use disorders, with a focus on opioid use disorders. It will compare and contrast the benefits and risks of providing methadone, buprenorphine, naltrexone or medication assisted-withdrawal during pregnancy for the mother, fetus and neonate. Finally, it will identify characteristics of a competent medication assisted treatment program for women in order to help the judicial system audience determine what treatment modality and program women and their children may most likely benefit from.

Building Recovery-oriented Systems of Care for Drug Court Participants

Presented by Laura Griffith

April 15, 2014

Across our nation, there’s a move toward recovery based care and support recovery-oriented systems of care so that we can expand recovery efforts to all aspects of a person’s life. These developments are important for Drug Court participants and graduates. There’s greater emphasis on the social, vocational, spiritual and other aspects of their lives through direct services and connections with the organized recovery community and natural helping networks. A growing network of Recovery Community Centers is just one example of the community-based institutions that offer lifelong recovery support.

Drugged Driving

Presented by Dr. Robert Dupont

March 25, 2014

Drugged driving, or driving impaired by the use of drugs other than alcohol, now rivals drunk driving as a major highway safety threat. There are an estimated 1.2 million annual arrests for driving under the influence (DUI), making drugged driving a significant law enforcement concern and providing a potential new pathway for drugged drivers to treatment and recovery. The science, law enforcement, treatment, and drug testing communities have made impressive strides in meeting this growing community threat. Returning veterans, many of whom face co-occurring diagnoses, including substance use disorders, are substantially at risk for drugged driving.  Robert L. DuPont, M.D., the first director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse and former White House drug policy director discusses the current knowledge about drugged driving and what can be done to reduce this serious problem focusing on the important role of Drug Courts and the criminal justice system linked to substance abuse treatment.

Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs:  Current and Potential Use in Drug Court Case Management

Presented by Dr. Grant Carrow and Judge Charles Hickman

March 21, 2014

Drug court use of reports from state prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) is an emerging application of PDMP information to address prescription drug diversion and abuse.   Most states have PDMPs, which provide authorized end users with reports consisting of a patient’s prescription history for controlled substances.  Eight states’ PDMPs can provide drug courts with PDMP reports for case management of drug court participants.

This webinar will explore how PDMP reports are currently being used for case management in drug courts as well as potential uses in the future.  The session will provide background on the prescription drug abuse epidemic, explain what PDMPs are and how they work, review the status of states with PDMPs generally, focus on those state PDMPs that provide access to drug courts and review the legal mechanisms used by states for drug court access to PDMP information.  The webinar will also explore the use of PDMP information in case management through review of different use cases, discussion of a case study from one drug court and review of trends in use of PDMP information by Kentucky drug courts.  Finally, the session will provide information on how drug courts can work with state PDMPs to gain access to PDMP information.

 

Know Who They Are and What They Need: Screening and Assessment for Co-Occurring Disorders

Presented by Dr. Roger Peters

May 28th, 2013

The relationship between substance use and mental disorders is complex and critical. Rates of these disorders in criminal justice settings are much higher than in the general population, and there many drug court participants have co-occurring disorders. Drug Courts are uniquely positioned to effectively intervene with persons who have co-occurring disorders. An important first step in developing specialized interventions for co-occurring disorders is to provide integrated screening prior to drug court entry. More in depth assessment of co-occurring disorders following program entry allows for rapid triage to specialized treatment interventions, case management, and supervision. This webinar will examine validated screening and assessment instruments for co-occurring disorders, strategies to determine eligibility for drug courts, and approaches for placement in specialized drug court services. 

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Describe several challenges in conducting screening and assessment of co-occurring disorders in drug courts
• Identify several instruments to screen and assess for co-occurring disorders, including instruments examining major mental disorders, substance dependence, PTSD/trauma, and criminal risk 
• Understand basic strategies to screen and assess for drug court eligibility
• Make adaptations to drug court assessment procedures to address co-occurring disorders

Alternative Tracks in Adult Drug Courts: Matching Your Program to the Needs of Your Clients

Presented by: Dr. Douglas Marlowe

April 17, 2012

More than two decades of research indicates which types of adult offenders are most in need of drug court services. Research shows that drug courts work best for offenders who are both high-risk and high-need. These high-risk and high-need offenders are in need of the full array of services embodied in the “10 Key Components” of drug courts. It may not always be possible or desirable for a drug court to target high-risk and high-need participants exclusively. In some communities the drug court may be the most effective, or perhaps only, program serving as an alternative to incarceration that has staff members with expertise in managing drug-involved offenders. This webinar will describe the conceptual framework and evidence-based practice recommendations for designing alternative tracks within a drug court to serve various types of adult participants.

Targeting the Right Participants for Adult Drug Courts

Presented by: Dr. Douglas Marlowe

 April 3, 2012

Adult drug courts are not designed to treat all drug-involved adult offenders. They were created to fill a specific service gap for drug-dependent offenders who were not responding to existing correctional programs. Research shows that drug courts work best for offenders who are both high-risk and high-need. These high- risk and high- need offenders are in need of the full array of services embodied in the “10 Key Components” of drug courts. This webinar will go over research and evidence to assist programs with revisiting the target population for their drug court.

But I Got a Script For It

Prescription drug abuse and addiction has traditionally been overlooked when considering its impact on criminal justice.  National studies and published reports indicated that the abuse of prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs is a growing concern.  The impact of prescription drug abuse and addiction on the criminal justice system must be considered in the design of, target population, and service delivery in specialty courts.
