The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) established a national research collaborative called Criminal Justice-Drug Abuse Treatment Studies (CJ-DATS) to study issues related to substance abuse treatment for adult and juvenile offenders. Some of the most prominent researchers in the field are involved in CJ-DATS, as well as policy makers and criminal justice and drug treatment professionals in over 13 states and the national associations. At least 10 studies are currently in the field, including a national survey of criminal and juvenile justice practices. You can visit their website at to learn more about the research that is being conducted by the CJDATS collaborative. If you go to Research Agenda or Brief Reports, you can find studies that are ongoing. Please sign up for electronic e-mails and newsletters containing research findings.
