Building new networks for recovering drug addicts is essential for the drug rehabilitation process, and having strong social support available has the potential to reduce relapse. This study looks at how the treatment administrators of a small Southeastern family drug court program utilize various resources in the treatment of their participants. It studies how they employ both individual and social treatment strategies, as well as physical, emotional, normative and cultural capitals that accompany them to aid in successful recovery. The intervention strategies provided by the treatment administrators are examined qualitatively to see if they are appropriately addressing the causes they have identified for the participant’s drug abuse. Potential implications of these findings for drug court research and drug court practitioners are discussed.
