Abstract: A considerable amount of evidence has been found showing that treatment courts that identify “high risk” and “high need” offenders—those at risk for failure in standard correctional rehabilitation programs (Marlowe, 2012)—are significantly more effective than those who do not. A local DUI Court program had been operating without risk profiling. The purpose of this study was to assist the program in building an easy to implement risk profile assessment strategy using existing measures, including GAGE, mental health status, and stress. Implications for improved targeting of high risk/high need cases are discussed.
