This guide maps out a sequence of steps for starting a juvenile drug court, beginning with the first planning meeting.
For each step, there is background information on why the step is important, key points to keep in mind as it is completed, and comments from drug court professionals reflecting on their own experience with this area of work. Following the background for each step, there are questions for the planning team to discuss and, for some steps, charts to complete or activities to conduct. The end-product of the work—answers to questions and the completed charts—will provide everything needed for a complete policy and procedures manual tailored to a particular jurisdiction.
