Stephanie Evergreen, Principal Investigator
Kelly Robertson, Research Associate


The external evaluation of Muskegon County’s Sobriety Court uses longitudinal data and interviews with ex-offenders to examine effectiveness and impacts.  Recidivism, improved education and employment, secure housing, and sobriety are main project outcomes the evaluation is assessing.  Beyond this, the evaluation seeks to understand the main participant groups taking part in Sobriety Court, to help the client see with whom the court system is having the most success.

Ultimately, the evaluation showed that the program reduced recidivism and was cost effective. SC Evaluation Final Report.
