Five-year follow-up of London families finds better outcomes among those in the Family Drug and Alcohol Court than ordinary care proceedings.

Key points from summary and commentary
• A five-year follow-up of a London Family Drug and Alcohol Court for women with substance use problems and their children.
• This alternative approach to ordinary care proceedings produced better outcomes relating to substance use, family reunification, and family stability.
• Parents viewed the process as fair, respectful, and empowering, which contrasted with ordinary proceedings where parents felt they had no voice and did not understand the process.
