The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Process Evaluation of the South St. Louis Adult Drug Court Program.

Maahs, Jeff, Matt Makarios, Erin Vice, and Jessica Stanek.

In April 2002, the South St. Louis County Adult Drug Court began operation in Duluth, Minnesota. This report summarizes information gathered by researchers at the University of Minnesota Duluth, in concert with program staff, as part of an ongoing evaluation of the program. The first section discusses whether the drug court program is enrolling the type of clients it was intended to serve. The second section examines retention rates, treatment provision, and measures of supervision and punishment to evaluate how participants are progressing through the program. The third section reviews program data on intermediate outcomes, including whether the drug court has reduced substance use and overall risk for recidivism among graduates. The final section summarizes the attitudes of drug court clients based on their responses to a self-report survey.
