In partnership with the Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI) and on behalf of the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the National Drug Court Resource Center (NDCRC) will be conducting the first biennial survey of Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts (THWC) in the nation. The purpose of this survey is to better understand how THWC are structured, how they operate, the outcomes produced (e.g., graduation rate), challenges experienced, resources needed, etc. Given that very little is known about THWC across the U.S., this survey is an attempt to fill the gap. Moreover, these data will allow us to determine the number of individuals participating in these programs nationally and identify and monitor trends within the field.
In appreciation for your time and effort, the NDCRC will provide you with a copy of the report, as well as a summary report of your THWC information that includes relevant U.S. Census Bureau, FBI Uniform Crime Report Data, CDC overdose data, & SAMHSA substance use and mental health data.
The link to the online survey will be sent on Monday, October 5th via email from the NDCRC. We will have many opportunities to ask questions and get assistance with completing the survey.
Don’t miss your opportunity to be included in the census of THWC.
