Amenability to Treatment of Drug Offenders

Volume 67 Number 2
September 2003

The authors discuss the legal and clinical factors that are relevant to making determinations about offenders' amenability to treatment. Many drug treatment programs for offenders have a condition that the offender must be "amenable." The authors explore how the "past predicts the future" in the concept of amenability, and lay out an agenda for future research into the concept.
