Main Study Protocol
The Juvenile Justice-Translational Research on Interventions for Adolescents in the Legal System (JJ-TRIALS) Cooperative conducted an implementation study in 33 sites. The study involved a data-decision making process centered on goal attainment in juvenile justice (JJ) community supervision agencies and their behavioral health (BH) partners, to facilitate movement of youth through the Behavioral Health Services Cascade (Cascade). The Cascade was used to determine progress on screening, initiation, engagement, and retention in evidence-based treatment(s).
