Case management, as a tool for improving service delivery, has a long history beginning with social casework in the early 20th century.
Case management emerged as a separate and professional service in the 1970s, where it was seen as a way to connect clients with multiple needs to an increasingly complex social service delivery system (Turner & TenHoor, 1978).
Throughout its history, case management has focused on the holistic needs of clients,
Addressing basic needs such as safety, food, and shelter, as well as emotional, medical, and other needs including employment, education, and connection with others in the community (Rapp, 1998).
Though there is little literature on case management specific to drug courts, the founding principles and concepts that guide case management in other milieus can be generalized to the drug court setting.
