Description

Over the last 30 years, the number of Drug Treatment Courts has grown as societal values have shifted away from punishment and more towards rehabilitation within the criminal justice system. This shift in values has created a renewed focus on factors that affect recidivism rates within society. Socio economics has been shown to be a consistent indicator in affecting drug-related incidents and crime. This study aims to study how socio economics affects recidivism rates within geographic areas that have established drug treatment courts and what this could mean for their overall effectiveness.
