People arrested for drug crimes often face jail time and perhaps court-ordered rehabilitation or treatment. In drug court, that’s flipped around: outpatient or residential treatment, regular check-ins with a judge, and jail time as a last resort. The program mixes criminal justice and social services in an effort to help nonviolent offenders -- and save the system money -- by keeping them from relapsing. This week, we’ll visit the drug court in Florida’s Sixth Circuit to see what happens and why it’s making a difference in participants’ lives.

University Beat was there, and you’ll see exactly what happened on this week’s report on WUSF-TV/DT.

Some of the smoking cessation literature that will be used in the Project Quit study
Can a simple pamphlet help someone quit smoking? Do some pamphlets do a better job than others at getting people to stay away from cigarettes? That’s what the Moffitt Cancer Center is trying to find out, and they’ve received an almost 3 million dollar grant to conduct a study that needs two-thousand volunteers. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM has the story.
