Juvenile Drug Courts

Welcome to the NCJFCJ's Juvenile Drug Court Information Center

The JDC Information Center provides visitors with a complete breakdown of the Juvenile Drug Courts: Strategies in Practice (16 Strategies) - recommended strategies for JDC programs. The Center has multiple tools, resources, and publications on evidence-based practices that JDC professionals can utilize for training purposes, information sharing, fidelity assessment, and strategic planning.
