This media guide was developed to assist with strategic messaging, media outreach, and ensuring your program receives the positive media attention it deserves.

The purpose of this guide is to help treatment court alumni think about the audiences that might want to hear their story, assist in constructing their story, help them think through the personal impacts of sharing, and provide tips on speech delivery and talking with the press.

Whether an issue involves a member of the court team, a program participant, or an organization or facility associated with the program, public confidence in treatment courts depends on their response in times of crisis.
