This exploratory study examined factors potentially associated with graduation for White and Black female Drug Treatment Court participants. Multiple logistic regression models for predicting program graduation were employed using an administrative data set (N = 1,093). Race was significant in a combined model. Age, prior felonies, employment, and negative peer associations predicted graduation for White women, whereas negative peer associations was the only predictor of graduation for Black women. Consideration of other factors that are not typically collected through administrative screenings is needed to better understand the strains typically experienced by Black women in Drug Treatment Court.
