Project

Curriculum for Drug Identification, Screening, & Testing in the Juvenile Justice System
Contracting Agency: OJJDP

This program was designed to build upon the drug testing guidelines for juvenile probation and parole agencies and the drug recognition techniques training curriculum. Based on comprehensive research, the project entailed the development of curriculum and a training program that describes three methods of identifying drug involvement (i.e., assessment, drug recognition, and chemical testing). The curriculum also emphasizes policy and program development issues relevant in identifying and intervening with drug-involved youth, including legal considerations and evaluation strategies.
