Equity and Inclusion

Foundational Information

According to Best Practice Standard #2, all persons meeting evidence-based eligibility criteria for treatment court receive the same opportunity to participate and succeed in the program regardless of their sociodemographic characteristics or sociocultural identity. The treatment court team continually monitors program operations for evidence of cultural disparities in program access, service provision, or outcomes, takes corrective measures to eliminate identified disparities, and evaluates the effects of the corrective measures. These resources will assist treatment court stakeholders with examining programmatic data for the purposes of identifying and addressing issues of inequity and/or exclusion.
