Summary Report of the Substance Abuse Screening Protocol for the Juvenile Courts

Publication year: 1993  |  Cataloged on: Jan 05, 2012

The National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ) developed and tested an early identification and assessment substance abuse protocol designed for the juvenile courts. This is a summary of the project, which began with a pilot project in San Jose, California, to validate a short-form screening instrument, and continued with three phases of the full project: protocol development, protocol implementation, and analysis and evaluation. The manual from the short-form validation, and the second-phase protocol implementation manual, are also available.
