NADCP Drug Court
National Association of Drug Court Professionals.
NADCP will not rest until there are Drug Courts within reach of every American in need.
The National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) is a national non-profit 501©(3) corporation founded in 1994 by pioneers from the first twelve Drug Courts in the nation.
This extraordinary group of innovative judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and clinical professionals created a common-sense approach to improving the justice system by using a combination of judicial monitoring and effective treatment to compel drug-using offenders to change their lives.
From those visionaries came the Drug Court movement and ultimately the broader “problem-solving court” principles taught in law schools and utilized in everyday court practice throughout numerous municipal, state and federal court systems nationwide.
Today, with 2,559 Drug Courts and another 1,219 problem-solving courts (mental health courts, community courts, reentry courts, DWI courts, etc.) in operation in all 50 states and U.S. territories, NADCP has forever changed the face of the justice system.
