"Today when I think of reentry court, I am reminded that nearly every offender sentenced to time in custody will return to the community from whence they came. And thus, every sentencing court is in fact, a reentry court, creating a pathway for the offender’s reentry into society." -Jeff Tauber

Drug Court Manual: 1994

Drug Courts: a Judicial Manual

I can’t remember who at the California Administrative Office of the Courts suggested that I write a manual for California Drug Court Judges. I do remember that I had been writing and presenting on Drug Courts in California for several years. It took me over a year of early morning writing sessions to produce  a special issue for CJER’s (California Center For Judicial Education and Research) Journal, entitled Drug Courts: a Judicial Manual( Summer 1994). Two thousand copies were initially printed, and a second edition published by the National Association of Drug Court Professionals, later added five thousand copies distributed across the nation in 1995-6. To my knowledge, it was the first attempt at a comprehensive review of the drug court and the judge’s role in it.
