Abstract

An increasing number of individuals are being referred to alcohol treatment programs under coercion from the criminal justice system. While a substantial number of investigations have addressed coercive treatment for illicitdrug-related offenses, fewer studies have focused on mandated treatment for alcohol-related problems. This article examines the treatment of two subgroups of clients coerced into alcohol treatment from criminal justice institutions. The article begins with an overview of the literature on clients coerced into treatment as a result of "driving under the influence" (DUI) charges. The characteristics of a subgroup that has received less attention are then described: lower socioeconomic clients who are coerced into alcoholtreatment from the courts for non-DUI offenses, such as public inebriation, disorderly conduct, trespassing, assault, and theft. This subgroup of non-DUI coerced-treatment offenders depends primarily upon underfunded public services, although their treatment requires careful assessment and triage for multiple problem areas. The article addresses some potential political and economic roadblocks to comprehensive treatment and closes with questionsand recommendations for further research.
