NADCP’s National Drug Court Institute (NDCI) has partnered with APPA to launch a ‘probation communities of practice’ project. This project is for adult drug treatment courts that wish to lead the field in applying the skills of core correctional practices and integrated case management to improve operations and enhance positive outcomes for clients. Three programs will be selected to participate in this project through a competitive application process.

Over the two-year project, selected programs will analyze operations to align with probation and integrated case management best practices. Each team will be assigned an NDCI coach to serve as its primary point of contact and who will design and deliver services, to include virtual and in-person site visits, training, technical assistance, and strategic planning. There will also be opportunities for networking with other selected sites to help each court align operations.

The deadline to apply is Monday, March 15, 2021.
