Current Research on Drug Abuse Treatment Practices and Outcomes in Correctional Settings
NIC News & Updates


The Institute of Behavioral Research at Texas Christian University (IBR) is a leading national research center for the evaluation of drug abuse treatment in criminal justice settings.  Research conducted at IBR is intended to generate and disseminate knowledge that impacts state, national, and international policy decisions in the addictions field.

In 2002, IBR was one of nine national research centers selected by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to study drug treatment practices and outcomes and to examine strategies for improving treatment services for drug-involved offenders.  Today, the IBR/TCU Treatment System includes a set of assessments and manual-guided interventions that "target" specific needs and status of clients in different stages of change during treatment.  

IBR Criminal Justice Drug Abuse Treatment Studies (CJDATS II) focus on organizational and system-level implementation strategies, and are designed to identify implementation strategies that maximize the likelihood of sustained delivery of evidence-based practices to improve offender drug abuse and HIV outcomes, and to decrease the risk of incarceration.    

The resources on the IBR site are made available without charge, and may be used for personal, educational, research, and/or informational purposes.
