Medication-Assisted Treatment Training for Treatment Courts


The National Drug Court Institute (NDCI), in partnership with the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), Executive Office of the President, developed the Medication for Addiction Treatment (MAT) for Treatment Courts training. This training program is for jurisdictions interested in learning about medication-assisted treatment and how to incorporate the use of the FDA-approved medications in their programs.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is designed for full treatment court teams. Because the workshop is highly interactive and focuses on group decision-making and consensus, the training experience will be enhanced by the attendance of as many team members as possible. NDCI requires the attendance of these members of treatment court team:

  • Judge
  • Prosecutor
  • Drug court coordinator
  • Treatment provider
  • Community supervision representative
  • Defense attorney
  • Law enforcement officer
  • Key stakeholders' representatives from other programs in the criminal justice system

Without these core team members it is unlikely that your team will be accepted.

This is training is free. Jurisdictions must provide a training space at no cost to NDCI.
