Description

In 2012, an initial evaluation of Minnesota’s drug courts was completed. The study observed a statewide cohort of participants who entered drug court between July 1, 2007 and December 31, 2008 and evaluated the participants’ outcomes (e.g., recidivism, incarceration costs) relative to a comparison group. The original study concluded drug courts significantly reduced recidivism, improved community outcomes, and limited incarceration and related incarceration costs for drug court participants over the research period. Furthermore, the study recommended a follow-up analysis be conducted to examine whether the positive effects of drug court continued into the long-run. The following supplements are the result of the long-run research, which extended the analysis timeframe to observe recidivism and incarceration for an additional year-and-a-half from the end date of the original study
