The department continuously seeks to collaborate with schools and other community agencies. Center for Applied Research on Substance Abuse and Health Disparities ARSH The principal mission of ARSH is the production, dissemination, and utilization of scientific knowledge in the areas of substance abuse, health risk behaviors, and health disparities among vulnerable populations.
Data on GABA drug misuse are urgently needed to contribute to public health knowledge and to inform public policy, prescribing practices, and prevention approaches. A social ecology theory-driven design is being utilized to describe GABA drug misuse, and examine risk and resilience factors that influence initiation, escalation, and consequences, from the vantage points of substance users and prescribers.
This study is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The abuse and diversion of prescription opioid analgesics is a substantial public health problem. This study collects national surveillance data on the nature and extent of pharmaceutical diversion.
The study includes a quarterly survey of prescription drug diversion completed by a national sample of law enforcement and regulatory agencies who engage in prescription drug diversion investigations. Participants include approximately diversion investigators in 49 states, including rural, suburban, and urban areas.
Cross-National Survey of Pharmaceutical Diversion in Canada The abuse and diversion of prescription opioid analgesics is a substantial public health problem. Participants include investigators in each province, including rural, suburban, and urban areas.
Based on prior month longitudinal natural history research of club and prescription drug using young adults, this study tested interviewer and self-administered comprehensive health and social risk assessments as distinct interventions compared to a waitlist control.
The outcomes for this National Institute on Drug Abuse-funded study were recently published: A randomized trial of brief assessment interventions for young adults who use drugs in the club scene. Journal of substance abuse treatment, 78, This study tested the efficacy of a small group sexual and substance use risk reduction intervention based on empowerment theory compared to an enhanced efficacious control condition among high risk non-in-treatment MSM substance users.

Maribel Del Rio-Roberts, Psy. Agreement among measures of autism spectrum disorders in school-age children. Quantitative study to examine concordance and discordance rates among 4 measures of ASD in school-age children.
The study will also attempt to delineate which specific measures are more clinically useful in predicting high- or low-functioning ASD in school-age children. The program evaluation is being conducted in partnership with CSC in order to determine whether STEPS is successfully preparing students to obtain and sustain employment after graduation.
In addition, NSU will evaluate the impact that the program has on its participants' overall quality of life and ability to function independently.
The goal of the proposed study is to implement an employability skills group that will blend cognitive-behavioral techniques, such as direct instruction, modeling, role-play, performance feedback, and reinforcement, which have been found to be effective in improving social functioning in individuals with AS and high-functioning ASD.
A mixed-methods approach will be used to investigate the effectiveness of this program in increasing work-related autonomy and improving the quality of life of adults with AS. Bureau of Justice Assistance, U. Department of Justice; and St. Center for Public Safety Innovation, St.
The main goals for the study was to 1 provide evidence-based assessments of the patterns of recidivism among Florida state prisoners released to Broward County; 2 to use the results of the study as a benchmark for future studies of released offenders in studying longitudinal patterns of recidivism; and, 3 to facilitate planning and implementation of the necessary prisoner reentry services of BSO.
This recidivism rate is very like that found in a national study of state prisoners released in across 30 states. Further analyses are being conducted in terms of the demographic and criminogenic characteristics of the prisoners and associated rates of recidivism with these characteristics.
The department at BSO reviews the common factors in each case with both the officers and the suspects and this information is presented to the agency during phase 3 of in — service training.
This data allows the agency to provide training that is current and relevant to threats that face law enforcement. While this information is extremely valuable and pertinent, the agency is unable to capture a lot of information that could certainly provide an even more detailed picture of how law enforcement officers respond to armed threats.
Currently, no all encompassing report exist detailing information of armed encounters not resulting in an officer fatality.
Information on encounters when officers survive, hit suspects, or fires their weapons without hitting suspects is non existent. The purposes of the present study are twofold: This study proposes to undertake a comprehensive analysis of armed encounters of law enforcement officers in Broward County for the past 10 years to incorporate data for both officer fatality and officer survival when a weapon is discharged.
The study will also provide current training information on armed encounters and will be beneficial not only to BSO but other law enforcement agencies in the state and across the nation that will be able to determine whether their training addresses crucial information.
