Welcome
 The Standing Committee on Drug Courts welcomes you to our Sixth An-
 nual Drug, DUI and Mental Health Court Conference. We are excited to
 announce this year’s theme, “Excellence and Innovations in Challenging
 Times.”

 Accountability courts make a tremendous impact on Georgia’s families and
 are an effective alternative to incarceration for non-violent offenders. Every
 day, Georgia’s accountability courts sustain success, save lives and save
 money.

 The Conference Planning Committee, chaired by Judge Jeffrey S. Bagley of
 the Forsyth County Drug Court, has worked to insure that this year’s con-
 ference provides a variety of topics and sessions representing the best prac-
 tices of accountability courts, substance abuse treatments and mental health
 communities.

 We hope that you will take this opportunity to network with other account-
 ability court professionals from across Georgia. Use this time to learn, re-
 fresh, renew, and go home energized!

Putting a Drug Court Within Reach of Every American in Need
Mr. Carson Fox, National Association for Drug Court Professionals
With two decades of success, drug courts are present in every state and US territory and in more than one
dozen nations throughout the world. Now, as we enter our third decade, our goal is to put a drug court within
reach of every person in need. This isn’t a small task, but we are up to the challenge. With strong support from
communities and state, local, and federal governments, along with more positive evaluative outcomes than any
other intervention in justice system history, drug courts are ready to expand in scope to reach as many justice-
involved addicted persons as is possible.

Monitoring Alcohol Abstinence Using EtG/EtS
Mr. Paul L. Cary, M.S., University of Missouri Health Care, Toxicology and Drug Monitoring Laboratory

Hijacking the Brain 2.0
Dr. Merrill Norton, University of Georgia, College of Pharmacy, Department of Clinical and Administrative Pharmacy
The development of the human brain is complicated in and of itself, but when you add the extra components of
childhood physical and verbal abuse and the use of alcohol and drugs at an early age, then the impact on the develop-
ment of the adolescent brain becomes more complex. The challenge of breaking through normal teen attitudes and
tendencies has caused many professionals to burnout and/or seek other employment. What leads a teen to behave or
act out in a way that is harmful to others, or put themselves in a potentially harmful situation and what can be done
to help them.

Ensuring Sustainability: Grants and DATE Funds

Preparing your drug court for long-term financial sustainability is a daunting task. Most drug courts, like other local
government programs, operate with a combination of funds, including city and county budget appropriations, state
and federal grants, reorganization of existing resources and perhaps foundation and community support. This ses-

How to Manage Drug Courts and Stay in Compliance Within ASFA Timelines for Children in Foster Care
Judge Juanita Stedman, Cobb County Juvenile Court-Family Drug Court; Judge Patricia P. Stone, Chatham County Family
Dependency Treatment Court; Judge John Worcester-Holland, Appalachian Circuit Family Dependency Treatment Court
Substance abuse by a primary caregiver is the most frequent reason for children coming into foster care, especially
for newborns. Substance abuse treatment requires time and commitment for the parent as well as for the sys-
tem. Relapse time is often part of the recovery process. Yet, young baby brains need caring, stable adults for at-
tachment and full capacity brain growth. ASFA (Adoption and Safe Families Act) mandates movement toward per-
manency for children in foster care for 15 out of 22 months. How do all these requirements get balanced in Family
Treatment Drug Courts? Carefully. Come listen to three Georgia juvenile court judges talk about what they do
every day to both comply with the law and serve the children and families before them.

sometimes actually assist in the treatment process.

Essential Components of a Successful Drug Testing Program
Mr. Paul L. Cary, M.S., University of Missouri Health Care, Toxicology and Drug Monitoring Laboratory

Breakout Session 6: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Doing the Right Thing in the Right Way: Evidenced Based Treatment
Mr. Terrence Walton, Washington, D.C., Pretrial Services Agency
Arguably, treatment is the ground upon which everything else in drug court is built. Interestingly, while we have
busied ourselves heralding the success of drug courts, that ground is gradually, yet steadily shifting beneath us.
Treatment expectations are changing. The treatment, recovery, and research communities are coalescing around
an approach to treatment that calls for the development of Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care and the use of evi-
dence-based practices. This approach will force programs to go beyond what has “worked for us” in the past and
forge new relationships in order to achieve the newly-defined “treatment success.” This presentation will provide
specific tools and strategies to help you discover the evidenced-based practices that are most likely to work for
you. Participants will leave prepared to tune-up their treatment vehicles as we explore helpful resources for pro-
viding effective relapse prevention planning, manual-based interventions, co-occurring disorder treatment, medica-
tion-assisted treatment, and more.

The Effect of Correcting Nutrition on Crime, Delinquency, Drug Abuse
and Their Precursors: Intelligence, Academic Performance, and Mental Health
Dr. Stephen Schoenthaler, California State University, Stanislaw
It is not well known that many state agencies have successfully added a nutritional component to their treatment
and sentencing structures that has lowered violence and other antisocial behavior including the elevation of IQ,
student grades, better mental health, and even normalization of brain function. Topics include how 803 public
schools eliminated the majority of learning disabilities and 14 correctional institutions cut violence almost in half
with diet alone. These resulted in several randomized controlled trials that allowed definitive attribution as to how
these diets changed blood nutrient concentrations, brain concentrations, and improved the behavior of the most
troublesome to treat and confine: the chronic offender.

with this court who will speak about the court and the challenges of starting a pilot court in these difficult eco-
nomic times. Included in this session will be information about the National Model of Child Support Problem Solv-
