Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $2,000,000)

The purpose of the BJA Adult Drug Court and Veterans Treatment Court Planning, Training, Technical Assistance, and Resource Center Initiative (ADC TTA) is to assist states, veterans, tribes, and local justice system officials and treatment professionals to implement evidence-based drug court practices. ADC TTA providers will assist newly established and operational adult drug treatment court programs to: build and maximize capacity; ensure drug court participants are identified and assessed for risk and need; ensure drug court participants receive targeted research-based services; enhance the provision of recovery support services; ensure the provision of community reintegration services to achieve long-term recovery; and collect and report on performance measures and identify and explain trends. In addition, ADC TTA providers will expand TTA services to address priority areas, including rural and tribal communities, partnerships with law enforcement, and addressing the opioid crisis.

The cooperative agreement recipient will, with guidance from BJA, deliver intensive TTA to Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts (THWC) while also identifying and delivering support services in collaboration with state drug court administrators. The TTA provider will provide proactive, comprehensive, and user-friendly TTA for THWC grantees; conduct site visits and report to BJA on each; assist tribes in using data and program performance to ensure drug court sustainability; work with the other ADC TTA providers to deliver THWC training sessions and resources to the field.
