The Juvenile Drug Treatment Court (JDTC) Training and Technical Assistance Program (TTAC) provides TTA to new and operational JDTCs to help them implement, monitor, and sustain effective practices for juveniles and their families. The services include:

  1. In-person and virtual training
  2. In-depth technical assistance.
  3. Webinars, publications, and other TTA resources for professional working in juvenile drug treatment courts and elsewhere in juvenile justice.

TTAC projects are multifaceted and will strategically target the 320-plus JDTC programs that operate across diverse geographical locations throughout the U.S. The National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) provides this TTA in partnership with the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ).
