Get better outcomes for youth in your court today.
Request TTA.

Our initiative provides training and technical assistance (TTA) to juvenile drug treatment courts, or JDTCs. These courts offer a way to respond to the needs of substance-using youth and to treat their complex disorders, which require specialized interventions.

Request training or technical assistance to maximize the power of your JDTC.

For more information, the project description for the Juvenile Drug Treatment Courts Training & Technical Assistance Project is now available to view and download as a PDF.

We provide training and technical assistance focusing on assessing and addressing the national juvenile drug treatment court needs from behavioral health and program practices perspectives to all JDTCs.
