Drug Court Online Learning System

Center for Court Innovation and Bureau of Justice Assistance

With funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Center for Court Innovation developed an online platform to share resources with the justice field about treatment courts. The website, Treatment Courts Online: The National Training System for Treatment Court Practitioners, provides access to online courses related to adult drug courts, juvenile drug treatment courts, the Veterans Treatment Court model, and Healing to Wellness Courts in tribal communities.

Drug courts seek to connect offenders that have substance use addictions to drug treatment and judicial monitoring. Juvenile drug treatment courts focus on providing treatment to drug-involved juvenile offenders to reduce substance abuse and recidivism, while the Veterans Treatment Court model adds a structured component related to mandatory court appearances, attendance at treatment sessions and substance use testing. Healing to Wellness Courts adapt the drug court treatment model to the specific needs of a tribal community.
