COVID-19 Home

During this unprecedented time, NADCP is here to help.

With our team of expert staff, we've assembled a library of resources for treatment courts to use as the world responds to the COVID-19 pandemic. As public health guidance and restrictions evolve, NADCP is adding new resources here to help courts adapt; check this site often for the latest resource updates.

In addition to what you find here, we encourage all practitioners to consult with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, relevant local, state, and federal authorities, and all professional organizations with which you are affiliated.

As you navigate this challenging time, NADCP will continue providing treatment court practitioners with the best in training, technical assistance, and advocacy. Do not hesitate to contact us with your questions and suggestions for how we can help.

  • Innovations: What real courts are doing to adapt to social distancing.
