Synopsis: There is evidence that substance use services in Tennessee are difficult to access for youth in the juvenile justice system. The availability of behavioral health care in rural areas may be especially limited. Complex systemic issues may be involved in determining whether a youth is referred by the juvenile court to substance use services. This study uses Hierarchical Linear Modeling techniques to examine the relationships between rural/urban county characteristics and characteristics of the juvenile court, as well as relationships between juvenile court characteristics and access to substance use services.
