About NDCI

The National Drug Court Institute (NDCI) was formed in 1997 in response to a great need for standardized, evidence-based training and technical assistance as a result of the rapid expansion of problem-solving courts across the US.

As a division of the 501(c)3 non-profit The National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP), we have continually evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of treatment court professionals and have emerged as the definitive authority on the latest research, best practices, and cutting-edge innovations to treat offenders facing substance use and mental health disorders.

With endorsement and funding from a variety of federal agencies—including the US Department of Justice, White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration—NDCI has successfully trained more than 200,000 adult, family, juvenile, and tribal drug court professionals in all 50 states, Washington DC, and three of four US territories.
