For two decades NADCP has been a leader in the criminal justice reform movement at the international, national, state and local level. NADCP works to create and enhance Drug Courts; including adult, juvenile, family, reentry and tribal models; DWI Courts, and Veterans Treatment Courts. In 1996, NADCP was the lead organization that developed the landmark and defining publication Defining Drug Courts: The Key Components and in 2015 NADCP published the groundbreaking Adult Drug Court Best Practice Standards.
NADCP’s cadre of experts are able to answer questions regarding Drug Courts, DWI Courts, and Veterans Treatment Court; drug policy, sentencing reform and the intersection of addiction and the criminal justice system. In addition, we regularly connect reporters with program graduates, judges and other professionals involved in these programs.
If you are new to this issue or an experienced criminal justice reporter, please consider us a resource.
