Week 2 Discussion

Drug Use among Diversion Populations

Think about the articles by Roberts (1999), Halkitis, Fischgrund, and Parsons (2005), and Marsiglia et al. (2004). Each of these articles describes a unique population of substance users. For each, briefly discuss the unique aspects of substance use, implications for treatment, and potential facilitators and barriers to treatment for these populations within the criminal justice system. Be sure to address cultural and demographic factors unique to these populations.

Week 3 Discussion

Assessment and Screening

Consider the article by Hirschtritt et al. (2018) and articles read during week 2. How are these articles related to screening and assessment? What specific lessons can be learned from these readings that would inform screening and assessment procedures?

The articles by Camplain et al. (2020) and Leiber et al. (2017) discuss race and ethnicity within the contexts of alcohol-related arrests and the juvenile court system and previously you learned about social constructions. Describe how these things might affect screening and assessment in criminal justice settings?

Treatment Effectiveness and Relapse

Based on Sugarman et al.’s (2020) review of interventions for incarcerated adults with opioid use disorder, why are evidence-based interventions that address both opioid use disorder and the social determinants of health needed? How do you think the criminal justice system can address social determinants of health in their treatment programs?

Pretrial and Diversion Settings

Explain how one’s social environmental, cultural, and demographic factors may impact treatment success in pretrial or diversion settings. Be sure to include at least three unique factors in your discussion (e.g., race/ethnicity, language, sexual orientation, infectious disease, gender, socio-economic status) and to draw specific examples from the articles by Gallagher (2013) and Liang, Knottnerus & Long (2016).
