Each division delivers cutting-edge training and technical assistance to the drug court, DWI court and veterans treatment court field.
The National Drug Court Institute (NDCI) was formed in 1997 in response to a great need for standardized, evidence-based training and technical assistance as a result of the rapid expansion of treatment courts across the US. NDCI continually evolves to meet the ever-changing needs of treatment court professionals and is now the definitive authority on the latest research, best practices, and cutting-edge innovations to treat justice-involved people facing substance use and mental health disorders. With endorsement and funding from a variety of federal agencies—including the US Department of Justice, White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration—NDCI has successfully trained more than 250,000 adult, family, juvenile, and tribal treatment court professionals in all 50 states, Washington DC, and three of four US territories.
Impaired driving is recognized as one of the biggest threats to public safety in the US. The National Center for DWI Courts (NCDC) was created in 2007 and is dedicated to reducing impaired-driving recidivism nationwide by addressing the root problem: addiction. NCDC partners with federal agencies and corporate sponsors to provide cutting-edge training and technical assistance to communities to implement, expand, and improve DWI court programs that provide treatment and accountability based on research-driven best practices. We are dedicated to expanding DWI courts to serve everyone in need and to make our communities safer each and every day.
Established in 2010, Justice For Vets is dedicated to transforming the way the justice system identifies, assesses, and treats our veterans, leading the national effort to put a veterans treatment court in reach of every veteran in need. We are committed to ensuring that no veteran is left behind by providing training and technical assistance to help communities bring together local, state, and federal resources to directly serve veterans involved in the justice system due to mental health disorders, trauma, and substance use. In doing so, we keep veterans out of jail and prison—preventing the loss of one of our nation’s greatest assets to our families and communities—and connect them with the benefits and treatment they have earned, all while saving tax dollars for the American public.
