Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts have experienced great success, even serving as models for other types of drug courts. Tribal values and the Tribal Key Components document are instrumental in their success. The Tribal Key Components form the foundation of all tribal drug courts. The Adult Drug Court Standards document represents the latest research-based best practices for what works within the drug court setting. Applicants for Wellness Court federal funding are now being asked to abide by both documents. This webinar provides an overview of both the key components and the standards, and discusses how they interrelate. This webinar is designed for those less familiar with the Wellness Court model and those seeking to use these documents to apply for federal funding and/or integrate into their own Wellness Court.
