Dr. Dwight Vick presents his multi-year evaluation of Iowa's community-based drug courts program. He combined a mixed methods approach and a four-part theoretical underpinning to determine whether the program was effective and whether its benefits outweighed the cost. His research led to changes in Iowa state law, allowing for the establishment of more such drug courts.
