The illicit use of substances is epidemic in our society.

Every day Judges are making decision about how to respond to behaviors that are driven, at least in part, by the use and abuse of substances. From criminal cases to domestic relations cases, a Judge’s decisions impact not only the individuals appearing in court, but their families, neighbors, and our community at large. This presentation is designed to explore the depth of the problem as it is presented in the different types of matters that judges hear. (Illicit drug use/abuse in this presentation will refer to illegal and abuse of legal substances.)

What will I learn?

During this course, you will learn to:

  • Cite national trends in the use and abuse of illicit substances;
  • Identify the cost to society related to the use and abuse of illicit substances;
  • Learn about factors that interfere with the litigant’s ability to comply with court orders, including Substance Use Disorder, Mental Health/Co-Occurring Disorders, Responsivity and Motivation Issues; and
  • Identify resources that will assist the court in the development of meaningful orders and expectations.

This webinar is number one in a 16-part webinar series entitled What Judges Need to Know About Substance Use Disorders. Substance Use Disorders (SUD) are on the rise in America and are increasingly appearing in the courtroom no matter the case type. SUD not only impacts the individual suffering from it directly, it can negatively impact those who interact with them. Throughout this sixteen-part webinar series, judges will identify the neuroscience of underlying Substance Use Disorder, explore the science of specific substances that are used and abused including their effects on the brain and signs of impairment, identify skills to be applied in order to be more effective in dealing with SUDs in the courtroom, and explore the Judge’s role in problem solving, advocacy, and building community resources.
