The Justice for Vets 2021 National Veterans Day Toolkit is full of guidance for respectfully recognizing the influence of this day on treatment court participants.
As of December 31, 2020, a total of 3,848 treatment courts were in operation across the United States. The official 2020 count is available by state and court type for all US states and territories. These data were gathered by National Drug Court Resource Center (NDCRC) staff directly from state and territory coordinators between January and April 2021. They are also displayed on our interactive map of treatment courts. How many courts are in your state?
National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) is a national observance held every September to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible.
What does Do Better mean? The NDCRC has launched a campaign to identify how we can all Do Better to elevate the treatment court field. Learn more about the campaign and let us know how we can help you Do Better every day!
The NDCRC will attend RISE21, the annual conference for treatment court practitioners, public health and public safety professionals, hosted by NADCP.

Notice anything different on the NDCRC site? On your first visit after March 15, you’ll be prompted to answer a survey about your experience using the website. If you close out of the pop-up without doing the survey, don’t worry! After you’re done working, you can still access the survey. This survey should only pop up on your first visit, so if you think of something later, you can still let us know. Thank you for helping us improve our website!
This survey closed May 19th 2021.
