HB 1524 would allow a portion of the criminal justice treatment account to be used to provide recovery support services to drug court clients to increase success in drug courts. The legislature finds, based on research and analysis from the Washington state institute for public policy and the department of social and health services, that providing recovery support services to clients in drug courts creates a benefit to the state of approximately seven dollars and sixty cents in reduced public expenditures and reduced costs of victimization for each dollar spent.
