Impaired Driving Treatment Court Operational Tune-Up

Advanced training to improve outcomes in established impaired driving treatment courts (DWI courts) and hybrid courts.


This interactive workshop is designed for established impaired driving treatment courts (DWI courts) or hybrid courts seeking to fine-tune their program to ensure it meets the latest evidence-based best practice standards. Tune-up workshops will improve outcomes in your program by expanding your team’s knowledge and skills. Programs must have been in operation for at least two years to be considered.

Each two-day workshop is conducted in your home jurisdiction and facilitated by seasoned experts with years of experience in treatment courts that serve individuals with impaired-driving offenses. Participating teams will review the critical foundational practices of successful programs, gain advanced knowledge leading to higher success rates, and learn about innovative treatment practices.
