Join the 2023 Foundational Training waitlist!

The National Drug Court Institute and Justice For Vets offer free foundational training for adult drug courts, tribal healing to wellness courts, and veterans treatment courts. The application period is now closed; however, teams are encouraged to apply to be added to the waitlist.


Foundational training is for treatment courts that are:

  • Pre-implementation

    Adult drug court, tribal healing to wellness court, or veterans treatment court still in the planning stages

  • Post-implementation

    Recently implemented programs that have not participated in formal training

  • In Need of a Refresh

    Established programs that have experienced significant turnover in staff

  • Never Trained Formally and Facing Challenges

    Established programs that have never participated in formal training

Programs that trained team members in preparation for program implementation averaged a 55% greater reduction in recidivism.
