The use of criminal justice authority is discussed as a possibility for keeping drug users in treatment to decrease drug use, decrease injection, and to reduce the spread of HIV. It is hypothesized that the perception of treatment and control is a central factor in the limited use of criminal justice authority by community drug treatment providers.
