Final Process Evaluation for the Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Court
The Ministry of Justice commissioned Litmus to undertake formative and process evaluations, and a cost-effectiveness analysis of the Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Court (AODT Court) being piloted in the Auckland and Waitakere District Courts.
This document reports on the findings from the final process evaluation, which assessed the actual operation of the AODT Court and its evolution against the intended design to inform the interpretation of programme outcomes. The final process evaluation is based on: a document review; AODT Court administrative data; interviews or group discussions with 23 AODT Court participants (including current, exited and graduated participants) and six whānau members; and interviews or group discussions with 64 stakeholders associated with the AODT Court. Data collection was undertaken in April 2016.
