May is National Drug Court Month, honoring the work that drug court professionals do around the country to help those impacted by substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Below are some drug court resources developed by some of BJA’s training and technical assistance grantees.
The University of North Carolina Wilmington Social Science and Applied Research Center houses the National Drug Court Resource Center (NDCRC). NDCRC provides many best-practice resources for treatment court professionals that “include operational materials organized by court type, seminal readings for treatment court stakeholders, calendar of professional development opportunities, moderated discussion board for all treatment court professionals, and more.”
The National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) manages the NADCP E-Learning Center, which offers free, self-paced courses managed by experts in the field, and the courses are geared to practitioners at all experience levels.
The Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI) hosts an annual Tribal Healing to Wellness Court training at no cost to attendees. This year’s virtual training will take place June 21–25, 2021, and those interested can learn more by visiting TLPI’s website dedicated to the event.
