program take defendants through an intensive treatment program lasting for a year or more, with the end result being sober members of the community with stable employment or positive progress through a vocational or educational program (DeKalb County Drug Court, 2006). During the levels of C.L.E.A.N. volunteer defendants have a drug court team. Each team consists of a designated judge, representatives of the State’s Attorney’s Office, the public defender or legal counsel of the defendant, court services, law enforcement, treatment providers, a community representative and a drug court staff member (DeKalb County Drug Court, 2006 p.34). The drug court team meets prior to drug court sessions and acts a case-management team for participants in the C.L.E.A.N. program before each drug court session.

The need for a substance abuse recovery home in Starke County, Indiana is a need that is unmistakable in the county based on the hefty number of individuals that suffer from substance abuse and dependency in the county which is clearly displayed by the recent number of crimes that are related to or involve illicit and prescription drugs.

The reading entitled “The Treatment Plan” focuses on developing treatment plans, particularly for those in substance abuse rehabilitation programs. First, the interdisciplinary team, which consists of a variety of professionals such as doctors, nurses, and therapists, writes a summary of the client at intake to determine the problems, how they came about, and the potential solutions. Next, a problem list is created. The problem statement is one sentence explaining the problem, which is abstract and not tangible. Therefore, signs and symptoms are also listed underneath, such as history of DUI and the blood alcohol level. These are used as evidence to back-up the problem statement. After, for each problem statement, several goals are listed that
There are many assessment processes that are used to identify substance abuse as well as many other disorders that are addictive. These processes include the SBIRT, AUDIT (Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test), NIDAMED, CAGE AID (which is used frequently within the counseling foundation), AUDIT-C, and also the DAST-10 which is an assessment process used to evaluate drug abuse within the patients. These are many different processes that are currently used to identify these addictions in clients. The activity of identifying these processes can be over a period of time or can be evaluated in that same day or after the evaluation is completed.

The results indicated that after randomization, no significant differences were identified between the groups on any of the background measures prior to incarceration, however there were a few differences found with regard to living arrangements, marital status and employment, with GRT participants (24%) more likely to be homeless compared to TC participant (11%). These differences suggested that GRT participants were disadvantaged upon entering the program. As a result, in all the multivariate analyses, these variables were entered as covariates. Hypotheses 1 suggested that participants in the GRT program would improve more over time in psychological wellbeing than the TC participants. This was not supported, as the composite scores between the groups did not differ. Hypotheses 2 suggested that participants of the GRT program would stay in aftercare longer than the TC participants. This was supported, with the results showing the GRT participants continued with aftercare treatment for significantly longer periods than the TC participants. Hypotheses 3 suggested that GRT participants would be less likely to use drugs post release. This was supported with results
