The South Australian Drug Court: An Analysis of Participant Retention Rates

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

A key problem common to virtually all Australian Drug Courts has been the relatively low retention rates. Across other Australian jurisdictions there have been various attempts made to explain these low retention and high termination rates but no comparable study has been conducted in South Australia. This study investigated the level of retention within the Adelaide Drug Court with the aim of identifying any differences between program 'Completers' and 'Terminated' that may help to explain reasons for non-completion.
