Breaking the Juvenile Drug-Crime Cycle: A Guide for Practitioners and Policymakers summarizes existing knowledge about efforts to intervene in the juvenile drug-crime cycle. Additionally, it proposes interventions and programmatic changes to successfully address that cycle. The coordination of case management strategies to meet the diverse needs of juveniles from their entry into the juvenile justice system until they no longer require supervision represents one of the key approaches to interrupting the drug-crime cycle presented in this National Institute of Justice Research report. The report also discusses implementing such strategies at the local level. Furthermore, the report elaborates on several key elements of a comprehensive model, including a single point of entry into the juvenile justice system and an active judicial role in ensuring the juvenile's adherence to recommended treatment services. This 22-page guide (NCJ 186156) is available only electronically at http://www.ncjrs.org/txtfiles1/nij/186 156.txt.
