OUTCOME EVALUATION REPORT for the RAPID REFERRAL PROGRAM  (Link to full Report) 
This report was completed in 2012 by the Vermont Center for Justice Research, Northfield, Vermont. 
 
The Rapid Referral Program is a partnership between Spectrum Youth & Family Services and the Chittenden District Court.  The purpose of this partnership is to increase access to mental health and substance abuse assessment services for individuals involved in the criminal justice system whose charge(s) are related to substance use.  The main objective of the Program is to provide judges with a mechanism at arraignment to rapidly refer defendants to Spectrum Youth Services for substance abuse screening and treatment rather than delaying services until the case is disposed by the court.
