dc.description.abstractIn recent years, there have been attempts to improve the quality of drug court systems, but this treatment program has yet to treat co-occurring mental health issues in order to prevent future relapses. There are many reasons why this has yet to be incorporated into mental health care, such as limited funding and lack of resources. Drug courts focus on clients who have critical needs rather than seeking long term results, whereas, mental health courts focus on getting people who have a serious mental illness out of the criminal justice system and into treatment without sacrificing public safety. Previous literature has identified various aspects that have an influence over individuals’ failure to complete treatment. This proposed study evaluates the lack of mental health treatment resources within drug court treatment programs that have a strong influence over why individuals fail to complete drug court programs. Future research within the drug court treatment plan should consider expanding to include mental health resources that mental health courts use to provide a more comprehensive knowledge on success rate and to more effectively implement court programs.en_US
