Evaluation of the Drug Offender Reform Act (DORA): Pilot Report
Study Dates: 2008 - 2010
Study Description: DORA offenders received significantly more supervision and treatment than comparison probationers. Predictors of successful probation completion included shorter time from conviction to probation start, community-based supervision, and treatment completion. At the 2010 update, DORA offenders were more likely to successfully complete supervision and treatment than comparisons. Treatment completers did significantly better than non-completers on post-supervision criminal justice outcomes.
