The new Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Guidelines serve as a framework for JDTCs and will be a vital tool for courts. The NCJFCJ provides recommendations to the field with resources and tools that can be used to implement best practices.
The Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Learning Collaborative is a JDTC demonstration project where JDTC teams receive targeted training and technical assistance to further implement evidence-based practices.
To request regional, statewide or jurisdictional training on evidence-based practices (i.e. adolescent treatment, trauma, and mental health).
To request targeted on-site technical assistance to help your team strategically plan program enhancements, receive feedback on court room protocol and pre-court staffing, and to learn about innovative ways to address common challenges seen with JDTCs (i.e. use of incentives and sanctions, community engagement, and collaboration).
