The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) established a national research collaborative called Criminal Justice-Drug Abuse Treatment Studies (CJ-DATS) to study issues related to substance abuse treatment for adult and juvenile offenders. Some of the most prominent researchers in the field are involved in CJ-DATS, as well as policy makers and criminal justice and drug treatment professionals in over 13 states and the national associations. At least 10 studies are currently in the field, including a national survey of criminal and juvenile justice practices.
