Building Treatment Court Tracks for Everyone
Building a Multi-Track Treatment Court
Virtual training for courts looking to serve more populations
Applications are open now for training from NADCP’s National Drug Court Institute on expanding your treatment court to serve individuals outside the high-risk/high-need profile.
Building a Multi-Track Treatment Court is a free, virtual training designed for programs seeking to serve individuals that may not need the full complement of services offered by a treatment court but with no other accessible alternative to incarceration. Attendees will learn how to improve outcomes in their community for the full spectrum of justice-involved individuals.
Apply soon: the two-day, fully virtual training is only offered three times in 2021 and has limited capacity. Applicants must have commitment from their full multidisciplinary team to be considered.
Applications close May 14.
Decades of research makes clear treatment courts should focus on high-risk/high-need individuals to achieve the best outcomes. However, it may not always be possible for a treatment court to exclusively target this population, especially if the treatment court is the only alternative-to-incarceration program offered by a jurisdiction. Many jurisdictions are trying to address the needs of those involved in the court system that may not need the full complement of the services provided in their treatment court.
This training is designed to expand knowledge, incorporate other tracks, enhance skills, and improve outcomes for the full spectrum of justice-involved individuals in your jurisdiction.
