We provide training and technical assistance to treatment courts across the United States.
We work with all types of treatment courts, including adult drug courts, juvenile drug courts, family treatment courts, DWI/DUI courts, veterans treatment courts, and other models.
Our staff of experienced treatment court practitioners facilitates on-site planning workshops and helps courts in the development of strategic plans that ensure fidelity to the model, promote evidence-based practices, build coordinated training strategies, and enhance interagency partnerships. In recent years, we have helped Washington, Colorado, and New York develop statewide strategic plans for their drug courts.
We help treatment courts successfully implement evidence-based practices like validated risk-need assessments, Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), and others. In New York, for example, we are helping to integrate Medication-Assisted Treatment into drug courts through training and policy reviews.
To help drug courts measure their fidelity to the model, we conduct hands-on assessments that look at intake, assessment, and referral procedures, case planning, compliance monitoring, data collection and evaluation practices, and other key performance areas. We also offer targeted training to address areas needing improvement.
Innovation and Technology
In addition to promoting evidence-based practices, we experiment with new and innovative approaches in treatment courts, including the use of technology to deliver remote treatment and supervision to participants, and using restorative justice practices to help participants repair damaged relationships and build a stronger foundation for long-term recovery.
On-Site and Remote Assistance
We offer both on-site and remote assistance to treatment courts nationally. Areas of assistance include strategic planning workshops, court assessments, training for staff and partner agencies, implementation of evidence-based practices, conference presentations, document review, research assistance, and much more.
