For over ten years, the National Association of Drug Court Professionals has coordinated National Drug Court Month. Each May, Drug Courts, DWI Courts, and Veterans Treatment Courts celebrate their success and unparalleled contribution to society by holding special events. National Drug Court Month shines a light on the collective impact of these programs, and sends a powerful message that they are an essential part of the community. National Drug Court Month also gives you the opportunity to promote your success to your Members of Congress, ensuring you will have their support when it comes time to allocate funding.
This year’s National Drug Court Month theme is “Drug Courts Save.” Whether it is saving lives, saving families, saving our roads from drunk drivers, saving veterans, or saving resources, Drug Courts Save! This May is our opportunity to show the world what that means.
From your court to the nation’s capitol, this year’s National Drug Court Month will unite the Drug Court community, the public, and policymakers.
NADCP has prepared a field kit to help you with your planning and we stand ready to assist you with your events. You won't want to miss the new section on social media!
