Therapeutic Justice: Life Inside Drug Court is a documentary film about the highly innovative and successful drug court in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The film shows the inner-workings of this cutting-edge rehabilitation program through the eyes of a judge who receives national recognition and a professional football player who struggles with drug addiction. Of 2,400 drug courts in the country, the Washington-Madison County Drug Court in Fayetteville is the only one with its own TV show. The film and the accompanying written thesis make a case for drug court as a preferred alternative to prison for the treatment of addicts. The written thesis contains an in-depth feature story about the Washington-Madison County program, a qualitative research proposal investigating the effects of cameras in drug court, a narrative describing the production of the documentary, and the film script.
