Outcome Evaluation of Salt Lake County’s Felony Drug Court Program
Study Dates: 2013 Study Description: The purpose of this study was to provide a current outcome evaluation of the Salt Lake County Felony Drug Court (FDC) program. FDC participants who exited in the years 2009-2011 were selected in order to allow for a sufficient post-exit follow-up period (approximately two years) for the majority of the cohort. Because the identification of a comparison group was outside the scope of this study, the analyses focused on pre- to post-exit changes in recidivism (new charges and convictions), examining the influence of length of program participation, exit status (positive, negative, neutral), and demographic factors.
