Sponsored by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, NDCI has the capacity to provide technical assistance services throughout the country to adult and family drug court programs. Technical Assistance is a combination of information gathering, needs assessment, cultural proficiency, analysis, problem solving, action planning, referral and follow-up.
Family Drug Court Technical Assistance assists operational family dependency treatment courts (FDTC) in developing better program practices, improving program outcomes and enhancing services to promote stabilized long-term recovery for parents and safe permanent homes for children.
Adult Drug Court Technical Assistance focuses on assisting operational adult drug treatment court programs in the development and implementation of improved program practices leading to greater program effectiveness and increased long term participant success.
Technical assistance can range from office based telephone assistance and conference calls to regional training presentations and onsite visits by trained consultants. Drug court programs can benefit from technical assistance in areas such as:
|Adult Drug Court Technical Assistance||Family Drug Court Technical Assistance|
Technical assistance is not only designed for newer programs but can be beneficial for established programs in various areas such as training of new team members, program review, teambuilding, and strategic planning. Technical assistance can range from office based telephone assistance and conference calls to regional training presentations and onsite visits by trained consultants. NDCI can also assist jurisdictions by providing faculty for local and regional drug court training sessions. While NDCI technical assistance services are available to all adult and family drug courts, priority for onsite technical assistance will be given to current Bureau of Justice Assistance drug court grant recipients.
