About this book


This cutting-edge sourcebook is ideal for physicians, addiction treatment practitioners, probation officers, testing programs, judges and anyone else facing challenges in practice with the treatment of drug court participants. The authors share their extensive knowledge in treatment of addiction and withdrawal, treatment for patients with dual diagnoses of mental illness and addiction, and treatment of diseases associated with drug use, such as tuberculosis, hepatitis, and HIV infection. Unparalleled discussions of the drug court system and the medical problems of drug court patients are presented.

With concise yet comprehensive chapters, readers find essential coverage of drug testing, drug test collections and reports, and common scams for falsifying drug tests. Other topics include medical educational services that physicians can provide for attorneys, judges, counselors, probation officers, and clients; challenges that treating physicians encounter; appropriate use of sanctions and rewards; and medical interventions. The authors share their personal teaching file of cases from the Adult Drug Court in California to draw a detailed picture of how a Drug Court should be operated effectively.
