Good morning,

The BJA Drug Court Technical Assistance Project at American University will conduct the second of twelve sessions for an interactive webinar series on Critical Treatment Issues with Dr. David Mee-Lee on Monday, March 14, 2016 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm EST, with a follow-up interactive web meeting on Tuesday, March 15, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm EST to address questions participants have that could not be answered during the session.

Session 2: Doing Time or Doing Treatment: Moving beyond Program Phases to Real Lasting Change

This webinar addresses the differences in the culture and mission between criminal justice and treatment of addiction. It will emphasize the path to achieving outcomes of increased public safety, decreased legal recidivism and crime, safety for children and families by expecting accountable, real change to reach public safety goals. It will contrast passive, compliant participation in treatment programs phases where clients too often just “do time” in treatment; and will discuss the use of incentives and sanctions that promote treatment engagement and sustainable change. We will also discuss punishing for rule breaking and positive drug tests; and abstinence-oriented versus abstinence-mandated approaches.

Session 2: Monday, March 14, 2016 at 11 AM PST/2 PM EST
Follow-up Q&A: Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at 11 AM PST/2 PM EST
