The purpose of this study was to assess mental health and trauma symptoms as predictors of drug court graduation among female offenders arrested and charged with prescription drug related offenses. Findings from a logistic regression demonstrated that, after controlling for baseline substance use, higher levels of trauma symptomatology significantly decreased likelihood of drug court graduation. Current results revealed female drug court offenders arrested and charged with prescription drug-related offenses with increased trauma symptomatology may need a more comprehensive baseline assessment and a greater level of trauma-informed clinical programming.
